I am a professor in theoretical physics and the Department of Physics. Research and teaching are both questions that engage me. I am deeply engaged in questions regarding teaching and learning and am the chair of the undergraduate education committee at the Faculty of Science.
I currently do no teach a regular course, but about once a semester I give a workshop on Flipped Classroom teaching via CeUL.
My reserarch focus on astroparticle physics and theoretical physics. My main area of interest is the dark matter in the Universe.
I am also a part of the Oskar Klein Centre for cosmoparticle physics.
I am co-author of several public computer codes:
- DarkSUSY, a program to calculate properties and observables for dark matter models.
- WimpSim, a program to simulate annihilation of dark matter particles in the Sun and the Earth and calcualte the resulting neutrino-fluxes including interactions and neutrino oscillations.
- GAMBIT, a program to make global fits to available data, mostly for dark matter models.
