My very own WWW home-page!
This page is still (and probably always wil be) ``under construction''
so some of it may change,
and don't take anything here too seriously for now.
I have ripped out a bunch of old physics material I
had here and some outdated biographical information and
put them in
a file of older material from
when I wrote the page a couple years ago.
Most of this page is really old stuff.
I have not paid much attention to it
lately, but have made some pages for
one of my more recent work `hardware' projects.
It's not complete yet, but the information there exceeds the
form. Other, even more recent work projects are not yet ready for
posting. On a totally separate note, I also made some notes to
post for various friends about my
wedding (Sept., 1998) and our experience
getting a US immigrant visa for my wife.
Here is a link to my CV and my list of
Recent (and some not-so-recent) seminars in easily accessible form.
(These are sorted in time order starting from the most recent.)
Copies of the proceedings I wrote for some of these are linked
- The NOON,2001 (Neutrino Oscillations and their OrigiNs) workshop
in Kashiwa was the site of my first talk after our latest K2K data update.
Here is a copy of the slides shown in
(gzipped) PostScript or in
Portable Document Format.
The same figures are together with some explainatory text in this
A formal written version for the proceedings will follow some time later.
This presentation is based on analysis of data through July, 2001.
- At the Snowmass, 2001 conference in Colorado, I was lucky enough
to be the first K2K talk at a big conference since we finalized analysis
of our newest data. Here is
the talk. I have added some answers to questions
after the conference. There are postscript and pdf files linked from the first
page, as well as a link to the postscript for each individual slide below
its appearance in the document.
This presentation is based on analysis of data through May, 2001.
Here is the proceedings in PostScript,
in pdf, and finally
in compressed (gzip) PostScript.
- For an interview at Oxford in June, 2001, I gave one short seminar
similar to the one below, and one ten minute presentation to
introduce my research to undergraduates.
- At ICRR in late March, 2001, I was invited to give a
seminar on the K2K beam modelling.
(That is an html version. A printable
version of the images is also available, but there is more information
in text attached to the html version.)
- The talk from the NOW, 2000 workshop (linked below this)
evolved through a series of job interviews
this past winter and seminars interspersed with them. The most recent
was a FNAL
`Wine and Cheese seminar'.
Some versions were colloquia and some seminars for audiences of varying
degrees of expertise; the time constraints also varied somewhat. I have prepared
a web presentation
of the logical union of these talks.
I have attempted to keep it up to date on K2K analysis and some views of other
experiments as of mid-March 2001.
- I attended the
(Neutrino Oscillation Workshop) in Italy. I gave a 35 minute plenary talk
Neutrino Oscillation Experiments which concentrated mainly on K2K results,
but reviewed other projects elsewhere as well.
- Overlapping with the beginning of that, Fermilab held a
second of the workshop series started last year at KEK on
Beams and Instrumentation. I attended only part of it, but
gave two talks there. The main one was
of a Neutrino Beam,
(local copy available)
and the second was
detailed description of one specific monitor aparatus.
- At the American Physical Society's
DPF 2000 meeting in
Columbus Ohio, I gave
this talk (gzipped PostScript, 1MB)
in one of the parallel
sessions on neutrino physics. It is a rather detailed (albeit short)
talk on details of beam monitoring and modeling.
Here is the proceedings contribution
corresponding to that talk. Three pages is not enough room to say much.
It may be a little too sparse
to get real information from unless you saw the talk or know a lot
about the specific topic. (The conference organizers asked all
speakers to upload their talks, so this and other talks presented there
are available from their site.)
- I attended the Dark2000
conference in Heidelberg, Germany, and gave a
talk on results at the Super-Kamiokande detector. Here is the
that I did for it.
If I get a chance, I will collate some of the slides into a web presentation.
- I have written a general
seminar on my work at the K2K experiment
in Japan (HTML, but many large
images make it a bit slow to load) aimed
at college undergratuate students. This was delivered in February, 2000,
and includes only information known at that time.
Want to send me
Yes, that really was my moustache!
I cut it off (several times). My wife doesn't like it so I will
probably leave it off this time.
Links to some things I think are interesting:
- I used to have a bunch of
physics related links here,
but I have put them into their own file as a mini list.
- Something other than science:
The Elements of Style, the authoritative book on
writing forms and formats. (--It is, however, useful for scientists.)
American Universities, a list of --you guessed it!--
Universities throughout the world, more of the same.
- Some neat links to cultural type shtuff. These could easily also
occupy a separate file, but I think it's good to show off that I
do in fact think occasionally about something other than work.
Search index for American folk songs; gives words and
sometimes playable tunes (in funny midi tones).
The songs in this index are "currently unavailable
because many of them are of unknown copyright status."
I am keeping the link alive in hopes that it will be cured soon,
although it has been a few years already....
General Gaelic music home page. Some nifty links. See especially
the one inauspiciously labelled just "Tunes".
- Harmonica lessons
on the web!
The USA CityLink Project Someone is actually trying to get
America into the information age. I was disappointed that
Albany's (my home town) is rather blase. Similar things for
Indian cities have lovely gif files of fantastic architecture
and sometimes those "clickable maps." Why isn't the state
education building, or the capitol, or some museum exhibits
- --and look at this!
A real gem of American culture (I'm
Dr. Seuss home page
- Other random stuff.
This includes some things I use a lot, some new things I've just tried,
and all manner of genera. It is not well organized.
- My life and my wife
I got married in August, 1998 and have some notes and
comments on that. This is also part of my more general personal
SUNY SB University home-page,
Physics department here;
Our group's home page, and
main home-page in Japan. (Warning: this could be slow!)
the UPENN Physics department's
home page (since I was a grad student there.)
where I was an undergrad.
I always get frustrated when I see tons of electronic information
on someone and cannot find the corresponding "physical" information.
(Sometimes I want to really "p-mail" someone.) here's mine:

Apr., 1999 (although that does .NOT. mean everything is accurate
as of then...)
I reorganized the general information and moved a bunch
of old stuff around. Also minor
updates to personal info (but it's still a little ragged --ah, well).
