Ashkenazi is an experimental particle physicist, studying the properties of the neutrinos. Out of all particles, neutrinos hold a great mystery. Unlike others, many of their properties are still unknown and the known ones, are very hard to explain.
All existing experiments are detecting neutrinos via observation of neutrino-nucleus interactions. Ashkenazi’s research plan is focused on estimating the impact of nuclear effects.
Ashkenazi is an active member of MicroBooNE and DUNE, a spokesperson of a dedicated electron scattering experiment at JLAB, and a Monte Carlo developer.
