Dr. John Back

Senior Research Fellow with a range of research interests:
Flavour physics and CP violation with the LHCb experiment
  • Maintenance of the EvtGen software that is used to generate simulation samples of B decays for understanding experimental data
  • Analysis of Lambda_b to J/psi Lambda and Lambda_b to mu mu Lambda decays
  • Dalitz plot analysis of charmless three-body decays; original co-author of the Laura++ Dalitz plot fitting software
  • Thermal modelling work for the Vertex Locator upgrade effort using COMSOL

Neutrino and accelerator physics
  • DUNE/LBNF targetry: proton beam and target simulation work optimising the muon neutrino flux using the Geant4 and Fluka software packages
  • Developing Pandora reconstruction software for 3D detector technology for the AIDAinnova project
  • Hidden sector physics with SHiP: muon shield magnetic fields simulation and targetry studies
