High-Energy Astrophysical Neutrinos at IceCube

Speaker
Nancy Wandkowsky
University of Wisconsin-Madison, Wisconsin IceCube Particle Astrophysics Center (WIPAC), USA

Host
Joel Perez-Jones

Abstract
In this talk I will review the latest results of the IceCube experiment on high-energy astrophysical neutrinos. IceCube, a neutrino telescope located at the South Pole, has unambiguously detected the first astrophysical neutrinos in a sample consisting of high energy events starting inside the detector. I will present the recent results using 6 years of data, and discuss how we utilize those events in a multi-messenger approach to find the sources of said astrophysical neutrinos.
