Outreach & Teaching

  • I gave a talk about the LHC to high-school children from Melbourne
  • I have answered hundreds of questions at Physics Stack Exchange
  • I cosupervised a PhD student at Monash University, Giancarlo Pozzo
  • I supervised Michael Bardsley’s summer research project, resulting in a publication
  • I taught a statistics course at Tartu University
