I am an experimental particle physicist and part of the University of Warwick Elementary Particle Physics Group. I have been a member of the LHCb Collaboration since 2014. My predominant research interests involve searching for, and measuring, CP violation (a violation of the symmetry between matter and anti-matter) in B-meson decays using data from the LHCb experiment at CERN. These measurements provide a powerful and precise test of the Standard Model and are sensitive to New Physics (NP) particles at extremely high energy scales.
Warwick Week Flavour Physics Lectures
These lectures, hosted at Warwick, are given to all first year PhD students in particle physics at several UK institutes.
I currently supervise two PhD students (one at Warwick and one at Cambridge):
- "Measurement of the CKM angle γ with decays" - Aidan Weiderhold (Warwick)
- "Search for the decay and measurement of " - Blaise Delaney (Cambridge)
I usually take two MPhys project students each year. Past projects have been
- "Combining Beauty and Charm datasets at LHCb" (19/20) - Aidan Weiderhold and Nick Latham
- "Studies of decays at LHCb" (20/21) - Ryan Firmin and Luke Grazette
- LHCb UK Physics Coordinator (20-22)
- LHCb Statistics Working Group Convener (20-22)
- LHCb Beauty to Open Charm Working Group Convener (17-19)
