Meet new KICP associate fellow: Bei Zhou

December 21, 2023

I am a theorist with a broad interest in astroparticle physics and cosmology, including neutrinos, gamma rays, dark matter, and gravitational waves. Specifically, I am interested in the origin and detection of TeV--PeV neutrinos and the MeV diffuse supernova neutrino background.
