Zimmerman, Eric D. Professor


Research Areas research areas


research overview

  • Prof. Zimmerman's research is in neutrino physics. He concentrates on the study of neutrino oscillations, with special emphasis on the production and understanding of neutrino beams. He is the deputy spokesperson of the NA61 experiment, a 150-scientist collaboration at CERN that studies the production of neutrinos using accelerators in order to reduce systematic errors in neutrino experiments. His other major current efforts are part of the T2K collaboration, which studies the oscillations of muon neutrinos produced at the J-PARC accelerator laboratory in Japan and are detected at the Super-Kamiokande detector, and the LBNF/DUNE project, a new neutrino experiment under development in the US.
