- Basic Information -

Time in Larsen Lab: 2013-2014
Basic Project Description: Primarily worked with Dr. Gardner Marshall on Particle Physics things, but also spent some time working in our lab. The work with us focused on (i) trying to develop tests to determine if a data-set is statistically stationary, and (ii) exploring fractal properties of disdrometrically-measured rainfall.

- Post-Graduation Activities and Current Status -

After graduating from CofC, Tim went to William and Mary to pursue a Ph.D. in Physics. He is currently in his 4th year there, passed the quals a while ago, and now works in Keith Griffioen's experimental particle physics work group -- in particular looking at differences (other than mass) between electrons and muons, which has implications for the proton radius problem. According to Timothy, this work is primarily centered around measuring and fitting the electric and magnetic form factors of various nuclei.
