Teppei Katori

I am an associate professor (reader) of King's College London. I am mainly working on 4 collaborations, the T2K (Tokai-to-Kamioka) and Hyper-Kamiokande experiments in Japan, the IceCube neutrino observatory in Antarctica, and the NuSTEC (Neutrino Scattering Theory-Experiment Collaboration) at Fermilab. The T2K is a long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment in Japan, sending neutrino beam from J-PARC to Super-K. The Hyper-Kamiokande is the third generation of Kamiokande experiment, and it studies beam neutrinos and natural neutrinos including solar, atmospheric, galactic supernova, and diffused supernova neutrinos. The IceCube is an array of PMTs covering 1km cube of ice under the south pole to detect high energy neutrinos. The NuSTEC is a collaboration of nuclear physicists and particle physicists, both theory and experiment, to promote and tackle with neutrino-nucleus scattering problems around 1-10 GeV. In the past, I worked on the MicroBooNE , MiniBooNE , SciBooNE , and future FINeSSE experiments, all at Fermilab. I am also interested in neutrino phenomenology, in particular I am interested in the search of new spacetime effect including violation of Lorentz invariance using neutrinos. From these works, I received the 2012 IUPAP C11 young scientist prize and 2013 APS Henry Primakoff Award ( MIT Physics News Spotlight).

I graduated from Tokyo Institute of Technology for the Bachelor of Science. I got my PhD from Indiana University, under the supervision of prof. Rex Tayloe. The PhD thesis is available here. Then I did 5 years postdoc at Conrad group in MIT Laboratory for Nuclear Science before I was appointed as a lecturer at Queen Mary University of London. In 2019, I moved to King's College of London.

My CV is available here.
