*Title: Searching for the Highest Energy Neutrinos with IceCube and ARA
*Abstract: One of nature’s unsolved mysteries is the origin of ultra high energy cosmic rays. Neutrinos offer a unique way to search for cosmic accelerators given that they propagate without interaction, and thus have the ability to point back to their source. I will outline the current status of IceCube’s hunt for the highest energy neutrinos (E > 1 PeV), as well as introduce a new online analysis being undertaken by IceCube intended to open up multi-messenger channels with outside experiments. In addition, I will discuss the alternative method of using radio detection to search for high energy neutrinos in the context of the Askaryan Radio Array (ARA).
