Senior Lecturer of Particle Physics, Lancaster University

I am member of the ATLAS collaboration at CERN's Large Hadron Collider. I am interested in the newly discovered Higgs boson, investigating whether it contributes to the difference between matter and anti-matter and using it as a portal to investigate new physics beyond the Standard Model. I am also interested in outreach for schools, working on our particle physics simulation http://lppp.lancs.ac.uk . In addition I am looking into options to harness the highly penetrative power of muons for applications beyond particle physics. For future detectors I am also interested in silicon sensors.
