Zelimir Djurcic is an experimental physicist with research interests in particle physics beyond the Standard Model. He is currently focused on measurements of the mass and other properties of neutrinos that may have profound consequences for understanding the evolution of the universe. He participates in research and development of particle physics detectors, leads various relevant data analyses, writes proposals, collaborates with senior colleagues, postdocs, and students. He is a presenter of invited talks at various workshops and conferences, reviewer of proposals, reviewer of publications in peer-reviewed journals, and is an advisor to students and postdocs.
