Thomas is an experimental physicist who specializes in neutrino physics, neutrinoless double beta decay, nuclear physics, and particle physics. He is one of the leads for the McGill University Nuclear Physics group and works closely with TRIUMF. Thomas is currently working on the outer detector for the nEXO experiment, silicon photomultiplier (SiPM) characterization, and the Light only Liquid Xenon experiment (LoLX). The nEXO experiment will use five tonnes of enriched Xenon to learn if the neutrino is its own antiparticle and LoLX will measure the performance of SiPMs in liquid Xenon.

More to come!
