I am a member of the XENON collaboration, an international research group operating a 3.3-ton liquid xenon detector in search for dark matter. In particular, I am interested in investigating theoretically-motivated dark matter candidates largely overlooked in favor of WIMPs. My current project focuses on characterizing processes that produce single electron events in our detector as a source of low-energy background that would mask potential dark matter signals interacting via electronic, rather than nuclear, recoil.
