Professional Background

I did both my undergraduate and postgraduate studies in the UK. I was a postdoctoral researcher with the University of Manchester but spent most of my time based at Fermilab, near Chicago. In 2019 I moved to the University of Minnesota as an assistant professor.

Research Interests

I study neutrinos, one of the most common particles in the universe, and simultaneously one of the hardest to study. Neutrino oscillations are my primary focus, through the DUNE and SBN experiments. But I spend a lot of my time worrying about our understanding of neutrino interactions with nuclei, and making measurements to improve this understanding.
