Ken joined the University of Southampton as a Lecturer and Ernest Rutherford Fellow in 2023. He is interested in all aspects of collider phenomenology of physics beyond the standard model, particularly effective field theories, extended scalar sectors and axion-like particles. His research aims to connect collider phenomenology with solutions to key puzzles of the standard model, such as the electroweak hierarchy problem, the matter-antimatter asymmetry of the universe, the observed dark matter abundance, and fundamental theoretical constraints from the study of analyticity proerties of scattering amplitudes.  He is an expert in the effective field theory approach to new physics searches at colliders, and has worked on large-scale global statistical analysis of high energy physics data and developed several codes for generating precision predictions at collider experiments.
