I work on experimental tests of the fundamental forces of nature and searching for new particles and phenomena. My research is carried out using data from the ATLAS experiment located at the CERN Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland.
My particular area of study is in searches for Supersymmetry using non-standard techniques to probe for physics which may exist beyond the standard model using charged leptons. You can learn a bit about particle physics here.
With ATLAS we have access to over one-hundred thousand computers working all over the world analysing data recorded by the detector at CERN.
We are expanding our local tier-3 computing centre to store and process huge volumes of ATLAS data and host the Monte Carlo simulation required to perform different detector studies and analyses.
The Adelaide group is developing a robust effort for the maintenance, operation and upgrade of the ATLAS detector. This includes building a world-class electronics laboratory on the Adelaide campus. This is a great opportunity for the training of students and staff in state-of-the-art techniques for high-throughput data-transfer.
Here is an event display from the ATLAS experiment showing one of the candidates for the discovery of a new particle consistent with the elusive Higgs Boson!
The Adelaide group are active in the ATLAS collaboration and prominent in Australian particle physics. We are members of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Particle Physics or CoEPP. Contact me if you would like to know more!
