Adryanna Major

I am a graduate student working under Dr. Kate Scholberg in the experimental neutrino group. My current research explores the viability of observing core-collapse supernova neutrinos in large-scale scintillator detectors via an interaction known as Coherent Elastic Neutrino-Nucleus Scattering (CEvNS).

In our Physics Graduate Student Organization, I currently serve as President (2019-2020) and, previously, Social Chair (2018-2019). Community vibrancy and conversation is not only meaningful, but essential to any healthy body, and I am grateful to strive for both with fellow students and researchers. The charity, friendship, and wit of my peers has made time as a graduate student and leader exceptionally rewarding thus far.

I am motivated by this universe's many questions and many wonders. The more I learn, however, the more I return astonished to this psalm (8:3-4): "When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained, What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him?"
