I am a theoretical particle physicist, working mainly on the phenomenology of QCD and the strong interaction. Amongst other things, I am an author of several different Monte Carlo programs for simulating jet evolution and hadronization, calculating jet cross sections to next-to-leading order in perturbative QCD, and analysis programs for QCD studies and jet physics. These are used by most of the experimental collaborations in the world.
If you didn't already know that, or don't know what the hell I'm talking about, then I'm afraid these pages are probably not for you. If you are looking for more information on particle physics, you could do a lot worse than to start here

You can now visit the graveyard where places that used to be linked from my home page go to die, as well as my old home page at CERN.
