Research overview

My research interests are in particle physics, and some of the current topics I investigate are: 

  • Resonance excitations and pion production in neutrino-nucleus interactions.
  • Hyperon production in neutrino interactions. 
  • Nuclear effects in neutrino scattering.
  • Neutrino magnetic moment search.
  • Search for Dark Matter. 

My research-related activities are 

  • Development of simulation software for neutrino interaction (leading author on NuWro generator and contributor of the resonance production model for the GENIE and NUANCE generators)


  • Development, construction and installation of particle physics detectors (current: DUNE, SBND and DarkSide-20k. Past: NOvA, SMRD, HPTPC)


I am a member of DUNE, SBND, MicroBooNE and DarkSide-20k experiments. 

PhD supervision

I am always looking for enthusiastic candidates for PhD project. A couple of ideas for projects I am planning to run in the next few years are at: http://www.lancaster.ac.uk/physics/research/particle-and-accelerator-physics/experimental-particle-physics/#d.en.349067
