Associate senior lecturer
Experimental particle physicist focused on instrumentation
I probe the fundamental structure of the universe using the ATLAS Experiment on the Large Hadron Collider at CERN outside Geneva, Switzerland. I am also working on the Light Dark Matter eXperiment, LDMX, which proposes to strike tungsten with an electron beam to try to generate dark matter particles lighter than protons in a laboratory setting. For both experiments, I specialise in design, construction, and calibration of the detectors themselves.
I also draw my own particle cartoons and use improvisational comedy techniques to articulate science concepts.
