I study neutrino oscillations and the production of neutrino beams in accelerator facilities. My main activities are on the T2K experiment, where I have managed to reduce the neutrino production uncertainty to the level of 5%. This is the most precise a priori estimate of neutrino production that has been achieved for any accelerator-based neutrino oscillation experiment to date!
My research has been nominated as an outstanding Ph.D. thesis by the University of Oxford, and published as a book by Springer.
Recently I have been studying protons from neutrino interactions that are below the track reconstruction threshold at the ND280 sub-detector of T2K, and how the modelling of these protons can bias our measurements of neutrino oscillation parameters.
I also provide DAQ and electronics support for the T2K near detector and T2K data analyses, and will take part in the preparation of the DAQ system for the Hyper-K experiment - the next generation megaton sized water Cherenkov detector with unprecedented physics potential.
I am a postdoctoral research associate in the Neutrino Group at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, at the Science and Technology Facilities Council, and a visiting researcher here at the University of Oxford. I completed both my undergraduate and DPhil degrees at the University of Oxford, and was also the inaugural recipient of the Kavli IPMU Oxford DPhil Fellowship.
