I'm a PhD student working primarily on searches for new physics (Supersymmetry in particular) at the ATLAS experiment at the LHC. We at the University of Adelaide apply a novel treatment of event kinematics called Recursive Jigsaw Reconstruction (RJR) to try to extract as much information from our datasets as possible. I also do some work on the ATLAS search for standard model 4-top production. I'm also involved in low energy electron identification and hardware upgrades for the future ATLAS inner tracker (ITK).

My supervisors are 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.
