My research is divided between the search for new physics beyond the Standard Model of high energy physics and work on the mathematical structure of physical laws. The former is mostly carried out in tandem with theoretical physicists in DAMTP and experimental particle physicists (in the Cambridge HEP group and elsewhere). The latter is carried out in collaboration with pure mathematicians in DPMMS.

My book, The Ideas of Particle Physics (Cambridge University Press), now in its 4th edition, gives an introduction to high energy physics and the LHC that is suitable for non-specialist readers.
