I am currently the Deputy Director of the John Adams Institute for Accelerator Science, a joint venture between the universities of Oxford, Imperial College of Science Technology and Medicine and Royal Holloway. My research interests span the portfolio of accelerator research activities at Royal Holloway.
My research interests are primarily in the development of state of the art accelerator beam diagnostics, devices used to understand and control high energy, low emittance charged particle beams. It includes cavity beam position monitor systems, laser-electron beam interactions, control systems, beam dynamics and feedback systems.
Another aspect of my research is the upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider, so called High Luminosity LHC. Royal Holloway has developed a Geant4 based code to simulate the seemless passage of particles through an accelerator and into detector and other systems.
