Recent Press release (by Miss Amy McSweeny)

Member of 2 international collaborations RBC-UKQCD and ALPHA

Working in particular on:
1. Kaon phyiscs: mixing, decay and CP violation (matter-antimatter asymetry). 
2. B-physics: heavy-quark effective theory, b-quark mass, decay constant, etc. 
3. Solving the sign problem with the density-of-state method (LLR)
