Research Interests

I work primarily on the MicroBooNE experiment at Fermilab.
MicroBooNE is a short baseline neutrino experiment using the booster neutrino beamline at Fermilab. It has a primary physics goal of studying the low-energy electron-like excess of events observed at MiniBooNE, but is also a key experiment for measuring neutrino interactions on argon and performing detector R&D which are both key for the future DUNE experiment.
Within the MicroBooNE collaboration I currently serve as the cross section physics group convener. I was previously the experiments Run Coordinator.

I am also a member of the DUNE experiment, involved in the construction of one of the two prototype detectors being built at CERN.

From 2011-2015 I worked on the T2K neutrino oscillation experiment in Japan.

New starters information

I wrote some documentation for new starters at Manchester. This is intended for summer students, new PhD students and postdocs, particularly those new to Manchester.
Find it here. It is incomplete, and only here temporarily, if you use it and find a mistake or think something should be added, let me know.
