I am a member of the IceCube Neutrino Experiment at the South Pole working on the search for new physics using extremely high energy, astrophysical neutrinos to achieve energies similar to and even beyond those reached in the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. In addition, I am co-chair of the IceCube trigger-filter board which oversees the configuration of the IceCube online and offline trigger and filter algorithms. I am also working on the development of a new high energy neutrino experiment, P-ONE, in the pacific ocean off the west coast of Vancouver Island. This is a new international effort in conjunction with the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in Germany and Michigan State University in the US.

Formerly I have worked on 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 14 TeV. These collisions reproduce the environment less than 10^-13 s after the Big Bang and were energetic enough to create Higgs bosons and my work helped make the discovery of the Higgs boson possible in 2012. My research topics while on ATLAS included Supersymmetry, Dark Matter, lepton jets and top quark physics. In addition I was responsible for the ATLAS Trigger Validation which ensures that our trigger selects the events it should.
