Affiliation: University of Sussex, Brighton, UK
I am a member of faculty in the department of Physics and Astronomy. Originally I came to Sussex on a national STFC research fellowship at the end of 2007 and was appointed as Lecturer in 2008 followed by Reader in 2013. Before that I was a postdoctoral researcher at the UK’s Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, working there from 2005-2007. I studied for my DPhil (PhD) at the University of Oxford and obtained my undergraduate degree from the University of Nottingham.
In 2013 I was awarded the Institute of Physics HEPP Group Prize for my research into neutrinos. I currently hold a five year European Research Council grant “AntineutrinoNOvA” that funds my NOvA group and allows me to focus the large majority of my time on research. I am an elected member of the NOvA Executive Committee and a convenor of the muon (anti)neutrino disappearance analysis group.
