Dhvani is a third year Physics and Astronomy undergraduate student from the University of Waterloo. She is extremely excited to work with Professor Nicolas Cowan as a 2021 Trottier Summer Intern. She has previously worked at SNOLAB as an Undergraduate Research Assistant working with the Low Background Counting Group. She worked under the supervisor of Dr. Ian Lawson, studying and modelling charge collection processes in High Purity Germanium Detectors to aid SNOLAB’s various dark matter and neutrino experiments. Dhvani has also worked with Health Canada to develop unique human anthropomorphic CAD models to improve calibration techniques for radiation detection in humans. She is thrilled to apply her background in radiation physics to exoplanetary research with iRex.
