I received my PhD from Duke University in 2010 while studying double-beta decay of 150Nd. I was a postdoctoral associate at Los Alamos National Laboratory until 2012. I am a Tennessee native, and have been involved in low background underground physics since 2006. I am also a certified miner! I run the Tennessee Tech Physics facebook group, twitter account, and blog. If you have any items of interest you'd like me to share, please send me an email or stop by!
