PhD Particle Physics - Lattice QCD - University of Southampton

1 October 2012 - 1 October 2016

I conducted research as part of the high energy physics research group in the department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Southampton. Specifically, I worked on lattice QCD in a team of about a dozen people, simulating particle physics interactions to come up with observables to compare with experiments. My various activities included:

  • writing and running analysis code (Python) to analyse results from simulations;
  • writing new simulation code (C++) to enhance simulation results;
  • liaising with colleagues in a research team, following a unified strategy to achieve specific research goals;
  • presenting results to colleagues in both the UK and ... Read more

Student Engineer - Mott MacDonald, Cambridge

1 September 2009 - 31 August 2010

For a year I worked as a student engineer in Mott MacDonald's Water and Environment Division. I worked in the plant and process team, which is concerned with the design of water and waste-water treatment processes. During this time I worked on a variety of projects for both domestic and overseas clients.

Mott MacDonald was contracted by the Sultanate of Oman to assess the security of Oman's potable water supply. My key contributions were:

  • compiling risk assessments produced by my colleagues into a unified set of summary tables;
  • producing graphics illustrating proposed changes to the supply network and ... Read more
