Danielle Norcini

Assistant Professor


Research Interests: Experimental particle physics; neutrinos and dark matter

Education: PhD, Yale University

Danielle Norcini is a KICP & Grainger fellow at The University of Chicago and will be joining the department as an assistant professor in July 2024. An experimental particle physicist, she will build a major new laboratory at Hopkins to develop a program focused on searching for dark matter and investigating the nature of neutrinos. Currently, her group is advancing experiments that use low energy-threshold, single-quanta skipper CCDs to directly detect dark matter. Norcini received her PhD from the Wright Laboratory at Yale University and earned both a BS in Physics and BA in Philosophy from Penn State University.
