BIO

Personal Profile

I'm currently studying for a Particle Physics PhD at the University of Sussex. I use machine learning to measure a rare process involving top quarks. I also prepare data from the ATLAS Experiment at CERN for use in education. Outside my main work, I get involved in all sorts of projects in education, outreach, science communication and public engagement.

 

MY EXPERIENCE

GRADUATE TEACHING ASSISTANT

February 2019 - Present

Tutored 5 modules at all undergraduate levels and across a range of topics:
Physics in Practice, Our Place in the Universe, Particle Physics, BSc project, Statistics and Data

STUDENT MENTOR

September 2020 - Present

Provide undergraduate students with support on a range of academic issues

POSTGRADUATE OUTREACH REP

September 2018 - Present

Represented University of Sussex at various outreach events at schools, local community, at university and online

INTERN, CARDIFF UNIVERSITY

June 2017 - September 2017

I was working in the Outreach group of the School of Physics & Astronomy. My main responsibility was translation of physics resources from English to Welsh. A secondary responsibility was mentoring younger work experience students.

 

EDUCATION

PHD UNIVERSITY OF SUSSEX

September 2018 - September 2022

My research involves making precision measurements of a rare top-quark process. This is performed under the supervision of Dr Kate Shaw of the ATLAS Collaboration. I also dedicate my time to work on the ATLAS Open Data project.

MPHYS UNIVERSITY OF MANCHESTER

September 2014 - June 2018

I obtained 1st class honours, with a mark of 83%. The title of my master's project thesis was "Enabling Open Science with the ATLAS Open Data project at CERN". This was performed under the supervision of Dr Darren Price.

SECONDARY SCHOOL, YSGOL CYMRAEG BRO MORGANNWG

September 2007 - June 2014

At A2 level I obtained 3 A*s in Maths, Further Maths and Chemistry, as well as 2 A's in Physics and French. At AS level I also obtained an A in Physical Education. For GCSE I obtained 13 A*s in Maths, Additional Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, ICT, English Literature, Welsh Language, French, Geography, History, Physical Education and Religious Studies, as well as 2 A's in English Language and Welsh Literature.

PRIMARY SCHOOL, YSGOL PEN Y GARTH

October 2001 - July 2007

My school was Welsh medium, which means all lessons were taught in Welsh. English is formally taught from the age of 7. In its 2016 inspection, the school was rated "good" in all departments. Since leaving, I've been back to observe Maths lessons for ages 9 to 11.

 

MY SKILLS

What I Do

PHYSICS EDUCATION

Education is about improving the teaching and learning of students. This is important to train the next generation of scientists and leaders. I'm looking to continue to develop this skill and seek a career in the field.

DATA ANALYSIS

Data Analysis means dissecting large quantities of information and drawing conclusions. The ability to extract key results is important in research. The field of particle physics is dubbed as "big data" or "data intensive", due to all the analysis which can be done.
