Cameron Clarke is a sixth-year PhD candidate in the Department of Physics and Astronomy. His research focuses on parity violating electron scattering techniques, including high precision detector and data acquisition development. His thesis work centers around the Lead and Calcium Radius Experiments (PREX-II and CREX), which have just finished running at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (JLab) in Newport News, Virginia. He is a cofounder and former president of the Stony Brook University Physics Graduate Student Association, and enjoys engaging with science communication and education, and their broader implications for society, both inside and outside of laboratory contexts. He is a big film and science fiction buff, and will talk to you for hours about anything if you let him.
