About

The ENRG is an official collaborator of ANNIE and NOvA neutrino experiments at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) in the US. We are actively doing physics analysis and neutron simulation studies for ANNIE and NOvA experiments. In addition, we are running a detector R&D program for ANNIE and other neutrino experiments around the world. 

Dr. Tiras holds an affiliated scientist position at the University of Iowa and is affiliated with the CMS experiment on the LHC at CERN. He is also an official collaborator of the DUNE neutrino experiment, which is under construction at Fermilab and the proposed THEIA neutrino experiment in the US. 

Furthermore, we are working on detector R&D studies for the CMS experiment at CERN and other high-energy particle detectors around the globe. Our main focus is running an R&D program for particle detectors and calorimeters as well as investigating cheap, radiation-hard, and fast-timing scintillators.

Our group's research interests are neutrino physics, particle physics, experimental nuclear physics, Monte Carlo simulations, detector R&D, calorimetric studies, data acquisition systems, and electronic instrumentation. Our detector research efforts are aimed at developing novel particle detectors for neutrino experiments, collider experiments, and other projects where precise particle detectors are required.

Our primary physics research interests are neutron studies and understanding their production and detection in neutrino experiments. We are also interested in Charged Current Quasi-Elastic (CCQE) neutrino interactions and better-understanding multi-nucleon physics processes such as 2p-2h.
