Project Title: 
Precision studies of Higgs couplings at high energies (WP3)
Location of Project: 
ALU-FR, Freiburg

Supervisors Names : 


I graduated from my home town university, The University of Liverpool, UK, in Theoretical Physics in 2010. My PhD studies in Liverpool primarily focused on the application of standard loop calculation techniques to exclusive processes and on using these processes to constrain Parton Distribution Functions. I am particularly interested in the analytic computation of loop corrections using dimensional regularisation. I submitted my thesis shortly after joining HiggsTools.

In my spare time I am interested in programming and electronics. I have contributed to an open-source project which aims to produce a DIY solar tracking device.

The expert training provided as part of the HiggsTools ITN will enable me to further my knowledge in currently one of the most exciting areas of high energy physics
