Pranava Teja Surukuchi, Ph.D
Pranava got my Ph.D. from Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago working on the PROSPECT reactor neutrino experiment leading the design, fabrication, QA, and assembly of the inner detector subsystem and led its first sterile neutrino search.
Pranava then joined Wright Laboratory as a postdoc working on the Project 8 neutrino mass experiment and CUORE and CUPID neutrinoless double beta decay experiments while continuing to work on the PROSPECT experiment. On the Project 8, he is leading the antenna design and the event reconstruction efforts on the upcoming Phase of the experiment. On CUORE experiment, he led the design of the muon veto system that will eventually be used for CUPID. He is also currently working on understanding the sources of resolution degradation to improve the sensitivity of the CUPID experiment.
