I work on the phenomenology of elementary particle physics. That means I spend much of my time trying to figure out what the data from the world's particle physics experiments are telling us about the fundamental constituents of matter and their interactions with each other.
The INSPIRE database can provide a list of my publications.
Web course on Quantum Field Theory in Particle Physics.
I have co-authored a collection of "TEDStudies" support materials on particle physics called "Physics - The Edge of Knowledge". These might be of interest to anyone wanting to learn more about particle physics, including school teachers.
