Research

Joseph is a member of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics in the High Energy Physics research group. He is currently interested in topological aspects of quantum field theories, with a focus on their applications in particle physics phenomenology. In addition, he has a wider research interest in Beyond the Standard Model physics, including the recent flavour anomalies measured by LHCb.

Public Engagement

In 2017, Joseph worked with musician Darren Bloom on his composition of "Five Brief Lessons on Physics", a piece for string quartet inspired by topics in theoretical physics. Bloom's composition, which was commissioned by the Royal Philharmonic Society, was premiered at the 2017 Cheltenham Music Festival and broadcast on BBC Radio 3. As part of the 2019 Cambridge Science Festival, Joseph co-presented the interactive lecture-recital event "Collision" alongside Bloom and the Piatti string quartet.
