LHC Physicist



I'm an Assistant Professor at the University of Victoria, working on the ATLAS experiment at the LHC. I also contribute to the MATHUSLA experiment, where designing ways to discvoer long-lived particles. For more information on my research group, please head to the Group page. I previously worked as a Senior Research Fellow at CERN, and before that as a Research Associate for McGill University in Montreal, Canada - but I was based at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland from 2013-2022. 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).
