Research Interests

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 2008. My main area of research interest is the study of rare decays of b-hadrons. Rare decays of b-hadrons provide a unique opportunity to test the Standard Model of particle physics, providing sensitivity to as yet unobserved particles with masses at the TeV energy scale.

I currently hold a Royal Society University Research Fellowship.

Postgraduate opportunities

Details of postgraduate research opportunities on the LHCb experiment can be found under B-physics at this link

Postgraduate teaching

The University of Warwick offers postgraduate courses for particle physics students through the Midlands Physics Alliance Graduate School. A complete list of the MPAGS modules can be found at this link. My course notes on relativistic quantum mechanics can be found here. The course is assesed by means of 4 problem sets:
