Research Interests
Kayla Leonard DeHolton is a particle physicist with expertise in using astroparticle physics to measure properties about neutrinos. Her work uses data from the IceCube Neutrino Observatory, and in particular the sub-array known as IceCube DeepCore as well as the future extension known as the IceCube Upgrade. Currently, her primary research interest is a phenomenon known as neutrino oscillations, with the goal of measuring the atmospheric neutrino oscillation parameters with increased precision.
