Research Interests

My recent research goal has been to calculate hadron-hadron scattering amplitudes from first-principles lattice QCD simulations. I have recently completed a benchmark calculation of the lowest lying hadron resonance (the rho) in an unprecedentedly large physical volume, which was enabled by algorithmic advances from myself and collaborators. As a member of the Coordinated Lattice Simulations (CLS) consortium, which is composed of researchers across the EU, I am now applying these state-of-the-art algorithms to other systems as well as performing first calculations of resonance photoproduction amplitudes such as the time like pion form factor. Finally, in the future these techniques will be applied to strongly coupled BSM models to calculate resonance properties relevant for LHC phenomenology.
