Member of the UKQCD collaboration:
The purpose of the UKQCD Collaboration is to procure and jointly exploit computing facilities for lattice field theory calculations whose primary aim is to increase the predictive power of the Standard Model of elementary particle interactions through numerical simulation of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD).
My Specialist Subjects are:
Particle Physics, Lattice Gauge Theories, Critical Phenomena, Statistical Mechanics.
- Beyond the Standard Model Physics.
- Lattice Gauge Theories coupled to matter and string breaking.
- Confinement, k-string fluctuations and large N expansion.
- Perturbative aspects of QCD in the framework of Lattice regularisation.
- Perturbed Conformal Field Theories in d = 2.
