Research

My current research interests are in particle physics phenomenology. In particular, I am an expert in the physics of hadronic jets, highly collimated bunches of hadrons, that are ubiquitous in high energy events at modern colliders. 

Jet events can be studied in the framework of Quantum Chromo-Dynamics (QCD), the theory of strong interactions. In particular, my expertise is in the description of processes characterised by two disparate energy scales. Such events are quite common at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), where one produces high-mass particles, and at the same time imposes energy restrictions on additional jets.

Here at Sussex I have developed a theoretical framework (ARES) designed specifically to describe two-scale processes. I am currently in the process of applying the ARES method to a variety of observables, both at the LHC and at future colliders.

Another important research direction I am pursuing is the application of jet physics to searches of physics beyond the Standard Model of elementary particles.
