Steven Dazeley studied physics at the University of Tasmania and the University of Adelaide in Australia. His research interests include neutrino oscillation physics and nonproliferation technologies. On the neutrino side, he worked on the Kamioka Liquid-Scintillator Anti-Neutrino Detector (KamLAND) and the Super-Kamioka Neutrino Detection Experiment (Super-K) in Japan, then later at the Double Chooz experiment in France.
At LLNL, Dazeley has contributed to the application of neutrino detection to nonproliferation by working on the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) antineutrino deployment in California. His current research includes developing ways to increase the sensitivity of antineutrino detectors via directionality and other techniques. He is working on the water Cherenkov monitor of antineutrinos (WATCHMAN) nonproliferation project—a kiloton-scale, gadolinium-doped water Cherenkov detector, and he is developing a water Cherenkov-based neutron multiplicity detector using similar techniques.
