I'm a postdoc working on both SNO and DEAP. For SNO, my focus right now is on the NCD data analysis, working on an alpha-pulse fitter. For the DEAP experiment, my work includes exploring the pulse-shape discrimination power in liquid Argon, as well as Monte-Carlo simulation of the detector response.

After defending my thesis about an indirect dark matter search in 2007, I came to Queen's from Uppsala for the opportunity to work with a SNOLAB experiment. It is a very stimulating environment, with all of the various efforts going on. My own work has so far been focused on PICASSO: calibration, installation and some analysis.

I am a research fellow in the Department of Physics at Queen's University. I have joined the group in July, 2008. My project concentrates on astroparticle physics at SNOLAB (2 km underground at the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory site near Sudbury, Ontario, Canada) facility. My main activity involves DEAP experiment (Dark matter search with liquid argon). This experiment addresses questions about the nature of dark matter and dark energy, and how these relate to the origins of our universe. The work includes Monte-Carlo simulations with GEANT4 for detector design, detector development, and data analysis for the extraction of physics results.

I started my work at Queen's in January 2009 and I'm focused on DEAP dark matter experiment. Before, during my grad studies at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow and at the Paul Scherrer Institute, I had been involved in slightly different physics (physics of cold and ultracold neutrons, neutron electric dipole moment). Currently, I am working mainly on Monte Carlo simulations of the detector and reduction of radioactive backgrounds (using ultra pure polymer coatings), plus some unrelated R&D and mining, occasionally.
