I’m a physicist, currently working in the neutrino research at UC Berkeley. Previously I worked at Juelich research center (Germany) working on the Borexino experiment located at Gran Sasso National Laboratories (Italy). As a member of the Borexino collaboration, most of my daily efforts concentrated on catching neutrinos coming from the core of the Sun. Today, besides the data analysis, I am interested in R&D necessary for future neutrino detectors, especially THEIA. I got my Cotutelle PhD in Particle Physics, University of Cologne (Germany) and Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University (Georgia).
