My research focuses on the search for new physics at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiment at CERN in Geneva. Although I am a theoretical physicist, much of my work is done in tandem with experimental particle physicists (in the Cambridge HEP group and elsewhere), devising methods to discover and measure the properties of any physics beyond the so-called `Standard Model'. I also work (with members of DAMTP and others) on building mathematical models to describe new physics, using data from the LHC and other particle physics experiments, as well as data from astrophysical observations.

My book, The Ideas of Particle Physics (Cambridge University Press, 3rd Ed.), gives an introduction to high energy physics and the LHC that is suitable for non-specialist readers.
