    Personal Statement

    I am the ATLAS Upgrade PI for Liverpool since July 2016. Together with Tim Jones, I am leading the Pixel Integration Manager for the Pixel Endcap built here in the UK for the Upgrade of the ATLAS tracking detector for the High Luminosity LHC.

    From 2013 to 2016, I co-ordinated the ITk simulation and performance group, the group responsible for producing simulations and studying the performance of candidate inner-detector layouts for the ITk. I served as an author and editor ATLAS Phase-II Upgrade Scoping Document (CERN-LHCC-2015-020) and the Strip technical design report (CERN-LHCC-2017-005), and was a core member of the layout task force responsible for the design of the ITK. I am currently leading the effort for the simulation of the new strip detector.
