Patrick Decowski is a professor of experimental astroparticle physics. He received his PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on the first Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) data using the PHOBOS detector in 2001. After MIT, he moved to UC Berkeley to participate in the KamLAND reactor neutrino experiment with the goal of studying neutrino properties. In 2009, he moved to Amsterdam to join the Dutch subatomic physics institute Nikhef where he started the Dutch dark matter experimental group. His group is involved in the XENON dark matter experiment and the DARWIN design study. He has a joint position with the University of Amsterdam, where he is a faculty member in the GRAPPA astroparticle physics Research Priority Area. He continues to work on both the XENON and the KamLAND(-Zen) experiments.
