I am a PhD student who is interested in collider phenomenology. I have experience in spinor-helicity methods and in jet substructure. Specifically, in my Honours thesis I learned about maximally helicity violating (MHV) amplitudes and how to implement them; while my Master's thesis was a jet substructure calculation. I am currently researching how to simplify amplitude calculations using a novel graphical representation of the spinor-helicity method, called the chirality-flow method.
