I did my undergraduate degree at King's College, Cambridge, before moving to Durham to do my PhD.

I am currently a postdoc at La Sapienza in Rome - see my current webpage for details.

Research Area

Flavour Physics and Dark Matter

Research Interests

I am interested in investigating anomalies in the flavour sector, and how they might be connected to new physics. I am also interested in improving the precision of the theory predictions in flavour physics, in order to better distinguish between the Standard Model and New Physics.
I am currently working on investigating model independent approaches to various flavour anomalies, and trying to improve less well known theory parameters in order to improve SM predictions, and have previously worked on trying to constrain dark matter models using flavour results.

Outreach

I have been heavily involved in outreach during my time at the IPPP, including taking part in the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition as part of the Modelling the Invisible exhibit as well various more local outreach events at Durham University for local schools.

As part of my commitment to outreach, I have given several talks to the wider postgraduate community in Durham:
