Scarlet Speakers from the Heart of New Brunswick:  

Progress and Puzzles: Neutrinos and New Frontiers in Physics

Andrew Mastbaum, Professor, Physics and Astronomy

Please join us virtually on Febrauary 21, 2023, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm. 

Andrew Mastbaum, Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, is an experimental particle physicist whose research is focused on neutrinos. Mastbaum obtained his Ph.D. at the University of Pennsylvania, then was a Grainger postdoctoral fellow at the University of Chicago before joining the faculty at Rutgers. His work uses neutrino beams created with particle accelerators, together with advanced detector technologies, to explore fundamental questions about the most basic constituents of matter, aiming to deepen our understanding of the universe and how it evolved.

Abstract:
Neutrinos are among the most abundant of the fundamental particles making up our universe but remain mysterious in many ways. These particles may hold the key to a more complete theory of matter at the smallest scales, and perhaps even help to explain the very existence of our matter-filled universe. With a new generation of experiments in progress, we are able to probe these questions and more in unprecedented detail. In this talk, Prof. Mastbaum will introduce neutrinos and their context in the universe, and discuss the exciting experimental programs underway to explore their puzzling properties.
