Southampton High Energy Physics (SHEP) group

The ATLAS detector, the largest particle detector at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world's largest atom smasher.

We explore the underlying theories of particle physics from collider phenomenology to string theory and from lattice quantum chromodynamics (QCD) to beyond the Standard Model physics and cosmology.

Particle physics is the study of the most elementary constituents of matter, the basic forces of nature by which they interact, and their role in the early Universe. The study of particle physics relies on experiments ranging from huge particle accelerators to deep underground laboratories, to orbiting satellites, to particle simulations using the most powerful computers.

My research interests centre on strongly interacting particle systems, including composite Higgs models.
