Welcome to my homepage.

I am head of the Particle Physics Theory (PPT) group in the School of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Glasgow. I have been in Glasgow since 1986 having previously worked in Cambridge University, CERN, Cornell University, The Ohio State University and the University of California at Santa Barbara.

My research is focussed on the phenomoenology of the strong force, and in particular the solution of the theory, QCD, using a numerical method known as lattice QCD. More details are available from the research link on the left.

I am a Fellow of the Institute of Physics and the Royal Society of Edinburgh. In 2005 I was awarded the Rosalind Franklin prize by the Royal Society and in 2006 an OBE in the Queen's 80th birthday Honours list. I also won the Institute of Physics High Energy Particle Physics group prize in 2006 and Nuclear and Particle Physics Division prize in 2011. I currently hold a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award.

I chair the Project Management Board for STFC's DiRAC High Performance Computing Facility and am a member of the Science and Technology Facilities Council particle physics advisory panel.

I am external examiner in physics at the University of Manchester.
