I am a research high energy physicist who has worked on QCD with the OPAL collaboration, SUSY searches with the ALEPH collaboration and B physics with ATLAS, BaBar and since 2000 LHCb. I have also helped build the LHCb VELO detector at Liverpool.
I currently study the decays of the Bs and Lambda_b meson using LHCb data and develop the software to support the LHCb VELO detector.
I run the Liverpool GridPP site, which is part of the international network of computers that are required to analysis the LHC data, for which I hold several grants from STFC supporting a large computer cluster and three staff.
I have taught several courses in Physics to both Physics students and those from other departments. Currently I am teaching the third year Quantum Mechanics course.
I am the admissions tutor for the Physics department.
