As a researcher and an instructor, my goal has been to demonstrate the excitement and beauty of physics to undergraduate and graduate students through my research. My research interests are focussed on using the ATLAS detector at the CERN LHC Collider in Geneva Switzerland to explore physics at the energy frontier. I have specialized in weak interactions
in high energy physics and the associated instrumentation and analysis
tools. Visit the research section of this website for further information.Recent undergraduate courses
I am teaching are first year calculus based physics and third year electrodynamics. Graduate courses I have taught centre around analysis and experimental techniques in particle
physics. The course on data analysis techniques emphasizes hands
on exploration of the subject using the ROOT program developed at
I have held a number of administrative positions. I was seconded to the position of Associate Vice-President Research (2004-2009) and before that I was Director of the Institute of Particle Physics for Canada (IPP).
