Speaker: Minerba Betancourt, Fermilab
Subject: Nuclear Dependence of Quasi-Elastic Scattering at MINERvA

MINERvA is a neutrino scattering experiment to make precision measurements of cross sections and investigate nuclear effects. A precise understanding of neutrino interactions is crucial for the neutrino oscillation program. Cross sections measurements of Quasi-Elastic events on multiple nuclei (carbon, iron and lead) will be presented.
