I have now relocated to beautiful Queensland - you can find my current homepage here.
I'm an astroparticle phenomenologist, which basically means a universal busybody. I stick my nose into particle theory and experiment, cosmology, solar and stellar physics, high energy astrophysics, statistics, computational physics and other things - usually two or three at a time. Have a look at some of the tabs at the top of this page for details of the fun I get up to.
From 2012-2020, I led the GAMBIT Collaboration, a bunch of 70-odd other like-minded busybodies from all over the HEP-astro diaspora, trying to put together all the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle that is the search for physics Beyond the Standard Model (of particle physics). A big part of that is dark matter, but really, we'll take any new particles we can get.
I was based at Imperial from 2014-2019 as an Ernest Rutherford Fellow and eventually Senior Lecturer. Before that I was a Banting Fellow in the HEP Theory group at McGill University, a PhD student in the Cosmology, Astroparticle Physics and String Theory Group at the Oskar Klein Centre in Stockholm, and a pre-doctoral student at the Mt Stromlo Observatory in Canberra.
