I am primarily interested in QCD collider phenomenology, especially at hadron colliders such as the Tevatron and the LHC. In particular, I have concentrated on:

- the calculation of higher order corrections in QCD;
- the production of final states involving top quarks, W bosons and jets;
- improving predictions for Higgs boson cross sections.

Much of this work is contained in the computer program MCFM, which uses perturbation theory (at the one-loop level where possible) to make predictions for many processes at hadron-hadron colliders. The homepage for MCFM is here.

A complete list of my publications can be found here.

My Ph.D. thesis, entitled "Higher Order Corrections to Multijet Production in Electron-Positron Annihilation", was submitted to the University of Durham in July 1998. Each of the links below will open up the corresponding chapter of the thesis. For more detailed information on each chapter, please refer to the table of contents.
