I'm an astroparticle phenomenologist, which basically means a universal busybody.  I stick my nose into particle theory and experiment, cosmology, solar and stellar physics, high energy astrophysics, statistics, computational physics and other things - usually two or three at a time. Have a look at some of the links to the left for details of the fun I get up to.


I lead the GAMBIT Collaboration, a bunch of 30-odd other like-minded busybodies from all over the HEP-astro diaspora, trying to put together all the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle that is the search for physics Beyond the Standard Model (of particle physics).  A big part of that is dark matter, but really, we'll take any new particles we can get.


I've been at ICL since mid 2014.  Before that I was a Banting Fellow in the HEP Theory group at McGill University, a PhD student in the Cosmology, Astroparticle Physics and String Theory Group at the Oskar Klein Centre in Stockholm, and a pre-doctoral student at the Mt Stromlo Observatory in Canberra.
