Steven's research interests include neutrino oscillation physics and nonproliferation technologies. On the neutrino side, he has worked on KamLAND and Super-k in Japan, then later at the Double Chooz experiment in France. At LLNL, he contributed to the application of neutrino detection to nonproliferation, working on the SONGS antineutrino deployment at San Onofre in California, and currently on the WATCHMAN joint nonproliferation project to deploy a kiloton-scale, gadolinium-doped water Cherenkov detector. He is also developing a water Cherenkov-based neutron multiplicity detector using similar techniques.
