I am a fourth year PhD student; my supervisor is Jeppe Andersen. Before becoming a PhD student I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Cambridge.
I work on the parton-level Monte Carlo generator HEJ which aims to describe processes involving two or more jets in the limit where these are widely separated in rapidity. In this limit, perturbative corrections to the cross section are enhanced by large logarithms, meaning that a standard fixed-order expansion of the cross section in the strong coupling is inappropriate. Instead we reorganise the expansion, and sum terms of a given logarithmic order, to all orders in the strong coupling, known as an all-order summation. I am currently working on including partonic configurations which appear at next-to-leading logarithm.
I have given talks at the following MCnet meetings
- CERN (September 2015): "Subleading Logarithms in High Energy Jets"
- KIT (October 2014): Higgs Production with High Energy Jets"
and at the following conferences:
- QCDatLHC Queen Mary, University of London (September 2015): "Subleading Logarithms in High Energy Jets"
