I am involved in the following research direction:

Herwig++

Herwig++ will be one of two or three, work-horse, multi-purpose event generators used in the analysis of LHC data.

In collaboration with Prof. Bryan Webber (Cambridge), Prof. Mike Seymour (CERN), Dr. Peter Richardson (Durham), Dr. Stefan Gieseke (Karlsruhe), Dr. David Grellscheid (Durham).

POWHEG

The POWHEG formalism of Prof. Paolo Nason allows the consistent combination of NLO calculations and parton shower simulations. We aim to exploit and realise this method for processes occuring in the LHC. Implementation of the method for various processes is a key part of the work. We are also interested in a general formulation of the method for automating 2->2 processes. Extensions of the method to NNLO, including realisations, are also to be addressed.

In collaboration with Prof. P.Nason (Milan), Dr. P.Richardson (Durham), J.Tully (Durham)
