I am a Graduate Student at the University of Oxford, working on the LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) experiment. Located at the Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF) in South Dakota, LZ uses a dual-phase time projection chamber (TPC) containing seven active tonnes of liquid xenon to search for dark matter particles.
Prior to working in Oxford, I graduated with first class honours in Physics with Particle Physics and Cosmology (MSci) from the University of Birmingham. As an intern in my third year, I worked with Kostas Nikolopoulos and Ioannis Katsioulas on simulations of the NEWS-G experiment, which hopes to detect light dark matter candidates using a gaseous spherical proportional counter (SPC). In my fourth year, I worked with Evgueni Goudzovski and Angela Romano on simulations of the NA62 experiment's KTAG subsystem. I also worked with Matthew Moulson, Tommaso Spadaro and Silvia Martellotti in the summer following this on simulations of the KLEVER experiment, a proposed future experiment to replace NA62 on the SPS.
