Public outreach & key achievements
I am a Reader in Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at Queen's. I hold a European Research Council grant (2019-2024) for a research programme developing theory for antimatter interactions with atoms, molecules and condensed matter. I graduated MPhys from Balliol College, Univesity of Oxford (2008) and PhD in Theoretical Atomic Physics from QUB (2011).
Since then I have been a Visiting Fellow at ITAMP, Harvard University, a Research Fellow at Durham University Chemistry Department and the Joint Quantum Centre, and an EPSRC Fellow at Queen's University Belfast. I was awarded the 2019 Institute of Physics Sir David Bates prize for outstanding contributions to atomic, molecular, quantum and plasma physics, the 2018 QUB Vice-Chancellors Postdoctoral Research Prize, and the 2017 international ICPEAC Sheldon Datz prize.
I am Treasurer for the Institute of Physics Ireland, and secretary of the Institute of Physics Atomic and Molecular Interactions Group (AMIG), and member of the scientific advisory board for the International workshop for positron and positronium physics (POSMOL).
