Dr. Nahee Park is featured on the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science website. In the article, she describes her journey to becoming a particle astrophysicist and her work using the latest technologies to delve into the origins of cosmic rays. Dr. Park is a new faculty member in the Particle Astrophysics group in the Department of Physics, Engineering Physics, and Astronomy at Queen's.
Prof. Park on her research:
High-energy astrophysics has been evolving really, really quickly. Around the time when I was earning my PhD, there was a general idea of what we expected to see, but we couldn’t detect high energy neutrino sources, or diffuse neutrino flux, or anything like that.
I think these new technologies* have the potential to really pin down some of these questions that we have been seeking for over a hundred years. It is exciting, in a way, because you know you are making history.
