IceCube and Neutrinos: Chasing Ghost Particles at the South Pole

Buried beneath the South Pole is the world's largest instrumented particle and astrophysics detector; IceCube. In this talk I will cover how scientists use neutrinos to open a new window into astrophysics and astronomy, while also probing the mysteries of the subatomic world.

Special guest lecture by D. Jason Koskinen from the University of CopenhagenD. Jason Koskinen

Bio
D. Jason Koskinen is an Associate Professor at the Niels Bohr Institute (NBI) at the University of Copenhagen. He received a PhD in physics from University College London in 2010 and worked as a postdoctoral research associate at Pennsylvania State University before joining NBI in 2013. Koskinen's research interests are related to experimental fundamental particle physics, specifically the phenomena of neutrino oscillation. He leads the activities at NBI related to the IceCube Neutrino Observatory, which is the world's largest and most sensitive ‘telescope' for high energy neutrinos.
