Graduate profile: Dr Rakhi Mahbubani
After leaving Bristol, I headed to the United States, for a PhD at Harvard, followed by a postdoc with the Particle Theory group at Fermilab.
In October 2009 I moved back to Europe to work at CERN as a Fellow. My research covers many aspects of physics beyond the standard model, particularly with regard to LHC collider phenomenology. I am currently studying missing energy signatures with an eye to efficiently extracting from them information about unknown particle masses and event topologies.
I found the Physics department at Bristol to be a stimulating and nurturing environment, with lecturers who really cared about us students, and what happened to us after we left. I thoroughly enjoyed my four years there.
