Research

Member of the ATLAS Experiment at CERN, Geneva, Switzerland. ATLAS studies the highest energy collisions ever created in a lab, produced at the Large Hadron Collider, where protons collide at a centre-of-mass energy of 7 TeV. These collisions reproduce the environment less than 10-13s after the Big Bang and will be energetic enough to create Higgs bosons if they exist. Recent research topics include Supersymmetry, Dark Matter, lepton jets and top quark physics. In addition I am responsible for the ATLAS Trigger Validation which ensures that our trigger selects the events it should.

I'm also a member of the PINGU experiment at the South Pole which will measure study the interactions of atmospheric neutrinos in the ice 2km below the surface of Antarctica. By studying how these neutrinos have changed flavour we will be able to measure the mass hierarchy of neutrinos.
