I conduct research in the
My effort is focussed primarily on the flagship oscillation measurements
I lead the activities of the
VALOR fitting group
Since 2010, my group has produced a number of official T2K results
on behalf of the full T2K collaboration (details here
I perform electron (anti-)neutrino appearance searches and
precision measurements of muon (anti-)neutrino disappearance,
and aim to produce strong direct evidence for neutrino CP violation.
I am centrally involved in preparations for the physics exploitation of the
Fermilab Short-Baseline Neutrino (SBN) Programme
I serve as SBND Physics \& Analysis Tool co-Coordinator, and
lead the development of a
simultaneous sterile neutrino oscillation and systematics
for SBN, using
considering several exclusive samples from all three LArTPC detectors.
I am also working towards preparations for
SBND neutrino cross-section measurements
of unprecedented precision,
as well as a meta-analysis of all SBND measurements of
neutrino interaction characteristics, aiming to produce an Argon tune
for use in the early DUNE physics exploitation programme.
I serve as the
DUNE-UK Physics Simulation and Experiment Design Work Package Coordinator
and involved in R&D for the
in US -
the world's next flagship neutrino experiment.
I lead analyses for the derivation of physics-driven requirements
experiment optimization and advanced analyses for the evaluation of
different design options
With the VALOR
I delivered the first-ever oscillation sensitivity calculations
from an end-to-end analysis using full event simulation and reconstruction.
I am one of the main authors of
and co-spokesperson of the international GENIE collaboration.
GENIE is the most commonly used neutrino interaction physics simulation:
It provides a bridge between theory and measurement and
it plays a crucial role throughout the lifecycle of every experiment.
I serve as the Systematics & Tuning WG Coordinator and
my effort is focussed on producing improved generator tunes and a
leading global fit
of scattering data.
I am one of the main authors and coordinator of the
VALOR neutrino fitting group
The group plays a central role in the T2K oscillation analysis effort,
as well as in sensitivity studies and the optimization of near detector for the Hyper-Kamiokande
and DUNE experiments.
My group develops novel Deep Learning
applications for the reconstruction and
classification of neutrino events recorded in Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC) detectors,
with particular emphasis in the physics exploitation of SBND data.
I am passionate about teaching Physics at all levels
either on an one-to-one basis or in large lecture theatres.
At Liverpool, I teach both core modules in classes of more than 100 students
and in small tutorial groups.
I also have had the privilege to direct the work of
several brilliant PhD students
whose PhD dissertations presented world-leading results.
