Evidence for a merger of binary white dwarfs: the case of GD 362Apr 10 2007GD 362 is a massive white dwarf with a spectrum suggesting a H-rich atmosphere which also shows very high abundances of Ca, Mg, Fe and other metals. However, for pure H-atmospheres the diffusion timescales are so short that very extreme assumptions have ... More

Predictions for the detection of Tidal Streams with Gaia using Great Circle MethodsSep 27 2016May 31 2017The Gaia astrometric mission may offer an unprecedented opportunity to discover new tidal streams in the Galactic halo. To test this, we apply nGC3, a great-circle-cell count method that combines position and proper motion data to identify streams, to ... More

Genetic Studies of Physiological Traits with Their Application to Sleep ApneaOct 27 2014Advances of modern sensing and sequencing technologies generate a deluge of high dimensional space-temporal physiological and next-generation sequencing (NGS) data. Physiological traits are observed either as continuous random functions, or on a dense ... More

Dark Matter Search in Nucleon, Pion, and Electron Channels from a Proton Beam Dump with MiniBooNEJul 16 2018Mar 29 2019A search for sub-GeV dark matter produced from collisions of the Fermilab 8 GeV Booster protons with a steel beam dump was performed by the MiniBooNE-DM Collaboration using data from $1.86 \times 10^{20}$ protons on target in a dedicated run. The MiniBooNE ... More

Low Mass WIMP Searches with a Neutrino Experiment: A Proposal for Further MiniBooNE RunningNov 09 2012A proposal submitted to the FNAL PAC is described to search for light sub-GeV WIMP dark matter at MiniBooNE. The possibility to steer the beam past the target and into an absorber leads to a significant reduction in neutrino background, allowing for a ... More

Running bumps from stealth bosonsJan 24 2018Mar 13 2018For the "stealth bosons" $S$, light boosted particles with a decay $S \to A A \to q \bar q q \bar q$ into four quarks and reconstructed as a single fat jet, the groomed jet mass has a strong correlation with groomed jet substructure variables. Consequently, ... More
