In June 2020, four of us from Imperial (well, one is now at Michigan State University and is a visitor here) did a "Discussion" on Reddit (actually more like an Ask-Me-Anything), based on the T2K result that graced the cover of Nature in April. Please go and have a look; we got "upvoted" by over 5,000 people!

Vietnam Flavour Physics Conference 2020 graphic

I was organising the third edition of the Vietnam Flavour Physics Conference, which is held every three years, and this year would have been between the 9th and 15th of August 2020 in Quy Nhon, Vietnam.

In early July, we had to announce that we have postponed the conference till next year; we were hoping to be nimble and to be able to host it as planned, but with Vietnam doing so well in the pandemic, with zero deaths, it seemed unwise for all of us to descend on Quy Nhon, no matter how much we wanted to.


My Inaugural Lecture

I am delighted to have been asked by Imperial to present an Inaugural Lecture, where I will talk about my research for the general public as well as any other topics of my choosing, and, ideally, be reasonably entertaining at the same time. The original date for the lecture was in late May 2020, but with College entirely closed for the academic year from March onwards, it has been postponed.

We did have a date pencilled in for January 2021, but because our campus is only partially open for the foreseeable future, it has been postponed yet again, indefinitely, this time....

Former PhD Students

One of the great joys of being a research academic is being able to spend a lot of one's time working with fantastic students. My PhD students who have now graduated include:
Soon to be added to the above list are A. Sztuc, W. Shorrock, M. Dubouchet and R. Derveni.
