Mike Heffner is currently the project director for the proposed nEXO experiment that aims to make the most sensitive measurement of neutrinoless double beta decay, a top priority for the nuclear and particle physics communities. Mike also led the fission TPC project, the first time projection chamber designed to make neutron induced fission cross section measurements.
