    Research Interests:

My research interests are in the area of Experimental Nuclear and Particle Physics.
Experiments are conducted at Jefferson Lab and TRIUMF.

A list of my publications and some recent talks is available.

Our final high-precision measurement of the proton's weak charge has been published in Nature [Vol. 557, pages 207-211 (2018)].
An excellent perspective for a broader scientific audience was provided by Xiaochao Zheng, in the "News and Views" section of the same issue.

Press coverage is here:
