Profile Picture of Dr. Simon Viel

I am an Assistant Professor in the Astroparticle Physics Experiments (APEX) group in the Department of Physics at Carleton University.

My current research goals are:

  • To develop software for detector simulation, event reconstruction and data analysis for DEAP-3600 and next-generation liquid argon experiments looking for dark matter, and nEXO looking for neutrinoless double beta decay in liquid xenon
  • To evaluate the suitability of silicon photomultipliers (SiPM) to detect scintillation light from liquid argon and xenon for future large-scale low-background experiments
  • To contribute to the design, planning, construction and operation of these experiments
