Erin Conley

I am a PhD student at Duke University specializing in experimental neutrino physics. I perform various simulation studies examining supernova neutrino signals. My PhD thesis will study low-energy neutrino-argon inelastic interactions in the COHERENT liquid argon detector called COH-Ar-10. I have also performed supernova neutrino simulation studies for the upcoming Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE).

I received my undergraduate degree in physics from Colorado State University in May of 2016, and my undergraduate honors thesis examined data taken using photon detector prototypes considered for the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE).

Current Research Interests

  • Supernova neutrino signals in the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE): Chi2 analysis on simulated νeCC event rates in DUNE to measure and constrain supernova flux model parameters; development of an algorithm that "tags" DUNE events depending on the interaction channel
  • Charged current neutrino-argon interactions in the COHERENT liquid argon detector
