Research

Research Interests:

My research focuses on neutrino physics I have been fortunate to be involved in a number of world-leading experiments that address the major issues at the frontier of our knowledge in this field (SNO, COBRA, T2K, SNO+). I currently spend 10% of my research time on the T2K experiment: a long-baseline experiment in Japan that is making precision measurements of neutrino oscillation parameters using a powerful man-made neutrino beam and both a near and far detector. I spend 25% of my research time on the HyperK experiment, a proposed future long baseline experiment in Japan to probe leptonic CP violation amongst other physics. I spend the other 65% ofs my time on SNO+: a multi-purpose low background scintillator experiment that aims to address a range of critical issues in neutrino and solar physics 

SNO+ Work

SNO+ is uniquely situated to make two major measurements: a search for double beta decay, the golden channel for probing the fundamental nature of the neutrino, which could also provide information on the neutrino mass scale, and a measurement of low energy solar neutrino fluxes, which should not only provide an accurate test of neutrino oscillation theory and probe for possible new physics processes but will also help to reduce uncertainties in solar modelling and our understanding in stellar mechanisms in general. In addition, SNO+ can also measure anti-neutrinos from the earth and nearby reactors, can search for invisible modes on nucleon decay and is sensitive to galactic supernova bursts. 

I am co-Analysis Coordinator for SNO+, and as such have a keen interest in all the physics measurements we can make. I am also PI for the QMUL group. We have a strong track record in analysis and simulation software development, background characterisation and reduction and event reconstruction. We are currently working on a measurement of muon induced neutrons from the SNO+ water-fill data. Understanding neutron production at this depth would be of great interest to other low background experiments in particular dark matter searches.  

T2K Work

Since joining the T2K collaboration in January 2010 I have been involved in calibrating and understanding the response of the electromagnetic calorimeters, a major part of the near-detector suite build in the UK. In particular I developed and executed the attenuation calibration, using cosmic ray muon tracks to help improve our understanding of the energy response of these detectors. I have also worked on other aspects of calibration, cosmic muon simulations, written code to simulate the cosmic trigger response, and worked on reprocessing test-beam data and Monte Carlo samples. I am responsible for evaluating systematic uncertainties due to event pile-up effects in the near detector and was involved in extending our high-angle sensitivity for cross-section measurements by utilising the electromagnetic calorimeters in the muon event selections. 

HyperK Work

I am co-Convener of the international HyperK working group on Near Detectors responsible in part for coordinating efforts on upgrades of the existing T2K near detectors and new concepts that could be used for HyperK in the future, and also R&D into intermediate water cerenkov detectors at 1-2km from the beam. These detectors in combination should be responsible for reducing the systematics due to flux and cross-section uncertainties to a few percent, required for HyperK CP violation sensitivity. I am also work package manager for Near Detectors on the UK HyperK grant. I supervised my PhD student on the development of a fast reconstruction package for TITUS studies and studies for neutron multiplicity measurement at the proposed E61 intermediate water cherenkov detector.

Examples of research funding:

My Grants

In 2011 I was awarded an ERC starting grant of 1.345 million euros over 5 years for work on the SNO+ experiment (2011-2017 with extension). This supported two graduate students and RAs as well as myself.

  • PPRC Consolidated Grant - STFC (01/10/15 31/09/17)
  • Hyper-Kamiokande STFC grant
  • JENNIFER (H2020 RISE) grant
