I'm a particle physicist at the University of Cambridge working on the LHCb experiment, a huge particle detector buried 100 metres underground at CERN near Geneva. I'm a member of an international team of around 1400 physicists, engineers and computer scientists who are using LHCb to study the basic building blocks of our universe. I study B-mesons, which are exotic particles containing a bottom quark. These particles are produced in huge numbers by the Large Hadron Collider and recorded in exquisite detail by the LHCb detector.
I'm also an author. My first popular science book, How To Make An Apple Pie From Scratch, which will be published in August 2021.
