Research interests

I have broad interests, having worked on effective theories in lattice gauge theory, beyond the standard model phenomenology, and on more theoretical issues in particle physics. Currently, I am concentrating my work on the physics of baryogenesis, and on recent developments in the study of scattering amplitudes in quantum field theories.

Biography

I began my education in theoretical physics at Trinity College, Dublin before moving to Caltech for my PhD, where I worked with Mark Wise. My research continued at the IAS in Princeton, the NBI in Copenhagen and now here in Edinburgh.
