I'm a researcher, formerly at the University of Adelaide and now at the University of British Columbia, working primarily on searches for new physics (Supersymmetry in particular) at the ATLAS experiment at the LHC. We apply a novel treatment of event kinematics called Recursive Jigsaw Reconstruction (RJR) to try to extract as much information from our datasets as possible. In recent times I have moved focus to processes involving top and charm quarks. In addition to my analysis work, I work on identifying low energy electrons reconstructed by ATLAS. I'm also involved in hardware upgrades for the future ATLAS inner tracker (ITK).

My PhD supervisors were Paul Jackson and Martin White. 

Apart from my current ATLAS duties I'm interested in applying RJR to other physics processes, especially in development of new variables to better separate signal from background. 

I have tutored first year physics in the past. I especially like teaching students who have never done physics before, so PAN and PLES are my favourites. 

In the last few years I've moved to teaching Intro to Data Science, a course taught by my supervisor Martin White.
