Dr. Muether's research is focused on experimental high energy particle physics and nuclear physics. He worked on the G0 Experiment at Jefferson National Laboratory (JLAB) studying parity-violating electron scattering from nuclear targets to probe nucleon sea quarks distributions. Recently, he is focusing on understanding the nature of neutrinos and their interactions with matter. He is a member of the Fermilab based NOvA and DUNE experiments. NOvA uses a pair of tracking calorimeters, one located in Chicagoland and the other in northern Minnesota, to study an intense beam of neutrinos produced at Fermilab. DUNE is a future high percision Fermilab based neutrino oscillation experiment.
