Research

My research interests are in phenomenological particle physics applied to problems in high-energy astrophysics and cosmology.  My research topics include magnetic monopoles, search strategies for magnetic monopoles in cosmic rays, ultra high-energy cosmic ray propagation, cosmic rays from gamma-ray bursts, dark matter distributions, signal modulation for dark matter searches, and mathematical models of neural networks.
