(As of November 2013, I'm a post-doc at Brookhaven National Laboratory: http://pubweb.bnl.gov/~dvp/)
(You can call me by my initials, I'm used to it from MIT.)
I was a PhD student in the Physics Department at
Columbia University for
5 years and a few months. From 2009 to 2010, I was the Physics Preceptor.
I received my M.A. and M.Phil. in Physics on 18 May 2010
and 8 February 2012,
respectively. I defended my dissertation on 29 October 2013.
My research is in experimental nuclear heavy ion physics. I work at PHENIX
at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider
(Brookhaven National Laboratory)
and ATLAS at the Large
Hadron Collider (CERN). My advisor is Brian
I'm MIT class of 2008 with an S.B. in Physics and an S.B. in
Mathematics. My undergraduate advisor was Peter Shor, and my
advisor was Joe
