Joseph A. Formaggio
Professor Joseph Formaggio is actively engaged in research in experimental neutrino physics. He received his Ph.D. from Columbia University, analyzing data taken at the NuTeV neutrino experiment. Upon graduation, he moved to the University of Washington where he was involved in the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory, a solar neutrino experiment located in Ontario, Canada. He subsequently moved to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2005, where he remained active in experimental neutrino physics. He is involved in the KATRIN and Project 8 experiments, which are dedicated in measuring the absolute mass scale of neutrinos.
The T2K experiment has measured the largest number of events associated with muon neutrinos oscillating into electron neutrinos, an important step toward seeing violation in neutrino interactions.
