I completed my undergraduate masters at Durham in 2013, with a masters project on monte carlo event generators; I then moved into the area of dark matter for my PhD, adding projects on neutrino and heavy flavour physics during my time here.

Research Interests

I am mostly interested in the many ways in which dark matter models can be constrained by data covering indirect, direct and collider searches. I am trying to understand the very broad statements that can be made about the phenomenology of any dark matter model (with as few assumptions as possible and utilizing the framework of simplified models and/or effective field theories).

I have also spent time looking at how machines that are designed to detect dark matter can be used to constrain new physics which may be unrelated; for example new particles in the neutrino sector.

For dark matter which interacts with quarks it is important to consider constraints that arise from heavy flavour observables, and this has taken up some of my time recently. Following this I have spent time looking at how flavour observables might be affected by duality violation rather than by new particles.
