Senior Lecturer of Theoretical Particle Physics

University of New South Wales Sydney

Research interests

Michael’s research interests are broadly in the field of physics beyond the Standard Model and astroparticle physics. Currently, he is focussed on the phenomenology of neutrino mass models and their connections to dark matter and baryogenesis, charged lepton flavour violation at precision experiments and colliders and the current flavour anomalies in semi-leptonic decays of B mesons.
