Professor Mark Messier focuses his research on the experimental study of neutrinos, serves as co-spokesperson for the NOvA experiment, and is a member of the MINOS and MIPP collaborations.
Professor James Musser's research includes work in both experimental neutrino physics and particle astrophysics. Jim’s particle astrophysics program involves measurements of the abundance of cosmic ray radioactive isotopes, which can be used to establish the characteristic timescale for the confinement of cosmic rays in the galaxy.
Assistant Professor Walter Pettus performs experiments to study fundamental neutrino properties and elucidate their mass. He is a member of the Project 8 direct neutrino mass experiment, as well as the Majorana Demonstrator and LEGEND 76Ge neutrinoless double beta decay experiments.
