My research at the Louisiana Tech University group mainly includes precision tests of the Standard Model of Particle Physics (SMPP) utilizing parity-violating electron scattering (PVES). We propose, design, develop, and build experiments based on PVES. My lab, Louisiana Tech Particle Detector Laboratory, designs, develops, and tests particle detectors for PVES experiments.
