Personal profile

Personal profile

My current research is related to characterisation of Silicon Photomultipliers for the Darkside-20k experiment. I want to determine the possibility of direct-detection of WIMPs in the silicon lattice with directional information.

My most recent completed work was focused on simulation of large-scale systems combining numerical general relativity and quantum mechanics. For this project I was awarded the Wheatstone Prize for higher research potential.

I am also interested in the philosophy of physics, the implications of new theory and results, and inter-field collaboration.
