Hello!

I'm a first second third fourth year Accelerator Physics PhD student at the University of Manchester working on aspects of proton therapy. If you are looking for me, I can be found in room 7.25 (probably) in Schuster Building. My Address is might be:

Room 7.25
University of Manchester
School of Physics and Astronomy
Oxford Road

Research Interests

My work involves modelling the processes involved in proton therapy, at the moment I'm looking at a way to work out where protons stop. The modelling is done using the code library Geant4, and a program built upon it, specifically for medical applications, called GATE. This is a surprisingly difficult thing to do and occupies a lot of my time.

I am also involved in the optimisation of Geant4, for both speed and memory usage and I have had some sucess in both regards!

As of 2014, I am a member of the Geant4 collaboration, with responsibility for the General Particle Source classes. I am working on more complete documentation for those classes, but it is a slow process.

Here are some links for the download of the current Geant4 release. I find those buttons annoying...
Geant4.10.00.p02 Geant4.10.00.p03 Geant4.10.01 Geant4.10.01.p01 Geant4.10.01.p02 Geant4.10.02 Geant4.10.02.p01

Older Stuff

During my MPhys year, I did some work looking at using Frequency Map Analysis as a tool for LHC dynamic aperture studies. The final report I produced fro that work is here. I should point out that there will be many mistakes in the report which haven't been corrected. It is provided for entertainment value only!

I also have a gpg key for secure emails. If you have GPG (and we know each other) we should exchange keysigns!
