I am a Tutorial Fellow in Physics; I focus on teaching the Mathematical Methods and Quantum Mechanics courses in the 2nd year at Lincoln.
I am a particle physicists and member of the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN close to Geneva in Switzerland. My current research interest is the search for new exotic particles or physics effects beyond the Standard Model in jet final states. One of the most important discovery signatures at the LHC are final states with hadrons which produce complex particle showers initiated by them and by interactions with the detector material. These particle showers are reconstructed in the detectors as so called “jets”. In addition to the experimental searches I actively work on the calibration and performance studies of jets in the ATLAS detector with the focus on extremely energetic jets and large area jets important for the searches with highly energetic top quark and Higgs final states.
Based on the graduate seminar "How to give a good Presentation" I wrote a book about "Presenting Science" with Professor Ken Peach. I also visit primary schools in the area of Oxford to talk about the work of particle physicists which is a lot of fun and I am also chair of the Outreach Committee of the Particle Physics Group at the University of Oxford.
