Research Interests

Flavour physics and CP violation; neutrino and heavy quark physics. I work in testing the model of CP violation effects that won Kobayashi and Maskawa the 2008 Nobel Prize in Physics.

Specifically, I am active in the study of B mesons, at the B factory experiments: (2001-2005) Belle at KEK, (2005-present) BaBar at SLAC (Warwick page), and (2008-foreseeable future) LHCb at CERN. Details of the Warwick group activity on LHCb can be found on under the Warwick LHCb group webpage.

Postgraduate research opportunities on LHCb are available (look under "B physics" on this link). Particular interests are tests of the Standard Model and searches for new physics with measurements at these experiments, and also at future facilities. I am co-leader of HFAG, for which I also have responsibility for averaging measurements related to the angles of the Unitarity Triangle.
