LHC Physicist



I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Victoria, working on the ATLAS experiment at the LHC. I previously worked as a Senior Research Fellow at CERN, and as a Research Associate for McGill University in Montreal, Canada - but I've been based permanently at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland since 2013. I completed my PhD at the University of Washington, Seattle in 2016. Before joining ATLAS, I dabbled around in theory and education (for more details, please see my CV). In my spare time, I cycle up mountains and ski down them (though so far not on the same day).
