Research Interests

Jenni Adams research is in the areas of astroparticle physics and cosmology. Astroparticle physics involves research at the interface of astronomy and particle physics. It is a synergy which operates in both directions; particle physics is applied to better understand astrophysical objects as well as using the Universe as a laboratory for high-energy physics. jenni's interests are in both theoretical and observational aspects.
Recent theoretical work has focussed on the oscillations of neutrinos escaping from supernovae, probing AGN models using gamma ray observations and supersymmetric dark matter models.
My group at the University of Canterbury are members of the IceCube collaboration which operates the IceCube neutrino observatory at the South Pole. Our collaboration has achieved a series of break-through results discovering astrophysical neutrinos in 2013 and identifying the first source of these neutrinos in 2017.
