This page is still (and always will be) ``under construction''
so some of it may change,
and don't take anything here too seriously for now.
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 roughly in time order starting from the most recent.)
Most newer talks are here in pdf format and possibly PostScript.
The older ones are mostly PostScript, some with HTML versions made
For the conference talks, I generally linked the conference web page as well;
those links may be untested.
- At the April, 2002 APS meeting in Albuquerque, I gave this
invited talk (pdf only, sorry)
at a session on neutrino oscillations. It was a half hour talk designed
to cover all of the ersults from both Super-K and K2K, with some time also
taken up by the description of the current detector status.
- In early 2002, I did a circuit of talks with the same result as
shown at the NOON conference, some with more detail, but some more general.
Here is a sample version that I gave as a particle physics seminar at
particle physics seminar at Michigan State
University. (See if you can find the mistake on my cover slide.)
Later I gave the talk as a physics department
colloquium, meaning that it was targetted
at an audience of physicists and physics students, but not necessarily
specialists in particle physics. The last few slides in that file are
things that are not part of the talk proper, but held in reserve to
answer common questions.
Here is yet another version made for
presenting to undergraduates at
California State University at Dominguez Hills.
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
Neutrino 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)
(local copy in pdf)
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.
Some projects in my research
I only have publicly accessible detailed description pages for some
slightly old projects. The most recent work projects are still
available only to my collaborators in research.
Here is a page for
one `hardware' project.
Although I did most of this work over three years ago and created
this write-up in Oct., 2000, I never really completed the public
information version. However, the information there exceeds the form.

This is a major overhaul of the format, my first attempt at using
frames. Also minor
updates to personal info (but it's still a little ragged --ah, well).
