Research

Ben is a member of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics High Energy Physics research group and The Cambridge Pheno Working Group based at the Cavendish Laboratory.

Ben is a particle phenomenologist and is primarily interested in interpreting data coming from the CERN experiments in terms of new particles and forces. He retains an interest in neutrino physics.
