About

PhD (1988) University of Toronto

MSc (1983) University of Toronto

BSc (1982) University of Waterloo


Research

My current interests are in the areas of the phenomenology of quantum gravity and string theory. In addition, I am a collaborator of the ATLAS experiment at the CERN laboratory in Geneva. Within ATLAS I am active in the areas of searches for new phenomena beyond the standard model of particle physics and measurements of the Higgs particle self coupling. I have responsibilities and interests within the technical areas of Monte Carlo simulated sample production and grid computing.


Teaching

See course below.

Announcements

I am now looking for new graduate students to work on the ATLAS experiment at CERN in Geneva.

I am currently looking for undergraduate research students. In particular, I seek students that have been awarded an IPP/CERN fellowship to perform research with me at the CERN Laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland. I am also interested in students holding an NSERC USRA, volunteer research students, and students wanting to do a PHY499 project with me.
