Research summary


I am currently working towards my PhD in Particle Physics, focusing on detector development for the LHCb Vertex Locator (VELO). The upgrade of the LHC will result in a far higher luminosity than has ever been experienced at a particle detector, and this brings various challenges when building new detectors; particularly in terms of speed and radiation hardness. More specifically, my interests focus on the software development and algorithms used for event reconstruction (see below).

My previous research projects include:

Visualising 5d data at LHCb (Bristol 2013)

Detector development for polarimetry at the ILC (DESY, Hamburg, 2012)

CMS trigger ...
