I am a Post Doc Research Associate in the Manchester Accelerator Physics Group, working with Robert Appleby on:

LHC upgrades


the CLIC post IP line.


and novel Fixed-Field Alternating-Gradient accelerators


Project: Fixed Field Alternating Gradient (FFAG) accelerators for Accelerator-Driven Thorium Reactors

Supervisor: Roger Barlow

The Accelerator Driven Thorium Reactor (ADTR), also known as the 'Energy Amplifier', could provide a source of Nuclear Power which is much safer than Uranium Reactors. In an ADTR an accelerator provides a source of high energy protons, which produce neutrons which cause energy-generating fission. To act as a net producer of energy, the accelerator in the system has to be highly efficient. FFAG accelerators could provide the required gain in efficiency to make the idea viable. The project is to ascertain the parameters required for such a machine and produce an outline design.

Merlin++ is a multi-purpose particle accelerator and particle tracking simulation library. I use it for collimation simulations for the LHC High-Lumi upgrades.
