Hello! I’m an Oxford-based physical sciences student of the Open University.
I completed the CERN Summer Student Programme 2013, during which I worked to develop a new kind of beam position monitor for the Large Hadron Collider. In 2014, I participated in the ACAS Accelerator School at the Australian Synchrotron in Melbourne.
I am the communications manager for CERN’s AEgIS antimatter experiment and for citizen science platforms PyBossa and Crowdcrafting. I also work as a freelance science journalist.
Outside physics, I have varied interests including playing in a funk band, salsa dancing, cycling, trekking and Capoeira. Being an Irishman, I also enjoy a bit of craic. p>
