I am a lecturer with the Accelerator Physics group of the University of Manchester School of Physics and Astronomy and the Cockcroft Institute. I currently work on plasma physics and accelerator topics associated with the study of fundamental properties of antimatter in the ALPHA experiment at CERN. I also conduct research on novel low energy sources for accelerators.
