David was already a member of the LUX/LZ collaboration, working on his Ph.D. at the University of Sheffield in the Vitaly Kudryavtsev group. He has been working mainly in backgrounds simulations and data analysis code development, and his Ph.D. thesis title is “Simulations of cosmic muons and background radiations for muon tomography and underground experiments”. David will continue working on the LUX and LZ dark matter experiments here at Penn State, and will lead the design, construction and operation of test systems for the commissioning of LZ. Welcome to Penn State, David!
