Greetings! My name is Brian Clark; I am a fourth year Physics PhD student at The Ohio State University. I work on high-energy experimental astroparticle physics. I study with Prof. Amy Connolly’s group, which researches ultra-high energy neutrinos as part of the OSU Center for Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics (CCAPP). I specifically focus on hardware, analysis, and simulation for a next-generation radio-neutrino telescope called the Askaryan Radio Array (ARA). My current research is supported by the National Science Foundation through the Graduate Research Fellowship Program.
In 2014, I completed my undergraduate degree at Washington University in St. Louis, where I graduated with honors with a major in physics, and minors in math and economics. At WUSTL, my undergraduate research was focused on high energy x-ray astronomy. I worked closely with Dr. Henric Krawczynski’s group on simulations related to the x-ray polarimeter X-Calibur.
