Rafael Lang is Assistant Professor at Purdue University, Indiana. He is working on the XENON dark matter search project, using a cryostat filled with liquid xenon to find dark matter in the Gran Sasso underground laboratory, Italy. For his Ph.D., he was working at the Max-Planck-Institut für Physik in München on the CRESST experiment, using scintillating crystals at millikelvin temperatures to search for dark matter. From there, his postdoc took him to Columbia University, New York, also on the XENON project, before joining Purdue.
