My Research Activities

Research topics include

  • astrophysical and laboratory searches for variations in the fundamental constants
  • searches for physics beyond the Standard Model
  • quantum mechanics in around black holes
  • development of new ultra-precise atomic clocks based on highly charged ions
  • atomic and nuclear many-body theory

I developed the atomic many-body code AMBiT, which has been instrumental in determining properties of atomic transitions such as isotope shift and sensitivity to variation of fundamental constants. It also enabled the discovery of optical transitions in highly-charged ions, which are being used to develop atomic clocks of extremely high accuracy and high sensitivity to potential variations in the fine-structure constant.
