Professor Reina Maruyama is exploring new physics in nuclear and particle astrophysics with dark matter and neutrinos. Her group is carrying out direct detection of dark matter experiments in terrestrial-based detectors and searches for neutrinoless double beta decay. The current experiments include HAYSTAC, COSINE-100, and CUORE to study dark matter axions, WIMPs, and neutrinos, respectively. She and her group use experimental techniques from quantum, atomic, nuclear, and particle physics to explore the identity of dark matter and neutrinos.
