PhD Student in Particle Physics

University of Cambridge, DAMTP


I am a PhD student at the University of Cambridge, in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics or DAMTP. I am working with Prof. Maria Ubiali’s group. My research focus is particle physics phenomenology. This is a bridge between theoretical and experiemental researches. I work on extending the Standard Model of particles using Effective Field Theory (EFT) terms which allow to describe the effects of potential heavy new physics without knowing its nature in advance. I am currently working on the interplay of Parton Distribution Functions (PDFs) describing the proton’s structure and new physics parameterised by EFT.

I have started my education in France in Lycée Saint-Louis and Ecole polytechnique before moving to the UK.

My research relies greatly on computation method to simulate and analyse collider data. In the future I plan to work toward the identification of relevant datasets and theoretical constraints to ensure the fitting methods we use to hunt new physics are robust.
