This is the home site of the group lead by Prof. Ignacio Taboada. This group is dedicated to experimental particle astrophysics. We are involved in two large international efforts, a very high-energy (VHE) neutrino telescope, IceCube, operating at the South Pole and a VHE gamma-ray detector, HAWC, operating at high altitude in central Mexico.
Our group focuses on the search for transient neutrino and gamma-ray sources, such as Gamma Ray Bursts.
