I am an assistant professor at Durham University and an STFC Ernest Rutherford Fellow studying the phenomenology of quark-flavour physics at the precision frontier. My research interests include:

  • QCD
  • Heavy-Quark Effective Theory
  • Dispersion Relations (and other low-energy approaches to QCD)
  • Weak Effective Theory

Publications

Public Computer Packages

Lectures

  • 2022/2023 – “Higgs Boson Phenomenology” as part of the course “Particles, Strings and Cosmology”
