Research summary

My particle physics research focuses on the subtle differences between matter and the mirror-image of anti-matter, called charge partity (CP) violation, and other aspects of quark flavour physics. Quark flavour physics is the precision study of how different quarks transform into each other. These transitions are the only known source of CP violation. But the most exciting aspects of this research is that it is highly sensitive to physics beyond the Standard Model of particle physics.

The Standard Model of particle physics is the current, highly successful theory describing the fundamental building blocks of matter and how they interact. It ...

Since 2006 I have been an academic at the University of Bristol, where I work on flavour physics topics at LHCb and CLEO-c. I started my physics career as a student at the University of Hamburg in 1993 and moved to Southampton in 1995, where I graduated (MPhys) in 1997. I obtained a D.Phil from the University of Oxford in 2001, where I also worked as a post-doctoral researcher, holding a PPARC Fellowship and later an Advanced PPARC/STFC Fellowship. I worked throughout my career on different flavour physics topics at LHCb, CDF and CLEO-c, and spent extended periods ...
