Research Overview

Particle physics is inherently a fascinating area of research that underpins our understanding, such as it is, of the universe, from the mundane to the exotic: what's in it, what are the forces that bring different pieces together, what are the properties of both the forces and the particles. Within this kaleidoscope, the most elusive, and thus the least well-understood particle, is the neutrino. My work focuses on understanding neutrino properties and behaviour, from neutrino interaction cross sections, to neutrino flavour-changing or oscillations, to explorations of whether a neutrino is its own antiparticle.
