Personal profile


I am a Professor in the Accelerator physics group of the University of Manchester.  My primary research is into the physics of particle accelerators, including beam dynamics and lattice design, and I am involved in the International Linear Collider and Large Hadron Collider projects.

I am a member of the LHCb collaboration at the LHC, where I am responsible for machine induced backgrounds.

Mphys in theoretical physics (York, 1996-2000), PhD in theoretical particle physics (Manchester, 200-2003), staff accelerator physicist (Accelerator Science and Technology CentreCCLRC, 2003-2005), Visiting postdoctoral scientist (LAL, 2004), Lecturer in accelerator physics (Manchester, 2005-present) and senior scientist at the Cockcroft Institute (2005-present)
