Research interests
Low energy Quantum Chromodynamics using computer simulation, and particularly matrix elements of hadrons that are required to constrain fundamental parameters of the standard model and search for physics beyond the standard model. I believe my publications represent the best constraints on Vus and BK which enter the famous unitarity triangle.
Subtopics: Kaon matrix elements  BK, Kl3 , K>pi pi. Nonperturbative renormalisation of Lattice operators. Chiral lagrangian. Hadron spectrum and decay constants. Electromagnetic effects.
I am a member of the RBCUKQCD collaboration, and collaborate with Columbia University, Southampton, Brookhaven National Laboratory, RIKEN Brookhaven Research Center, University of Virginia, University of Connecticut.
