For my thesis I am undertaking an analysis of charm meson decays using data taken at the LHCb experiment, CERN. I am studying the decays of D0 mesons to kaons and pions to measure mixing and CP violation. This work also has the potential to contribute towards measurements of the CKM angle gamma.
I am also a member of the TORCH collaboration, an R&D project to develop a new time-of-flight subdetector for LHCb to improve the particle identification of charged particles with low momentum. I am analysing data taken from a prototype and will be involved in the beam tests with a future prototype.
