John joined the TPPC group at King's in 2021 after graduating with a master's in Particle Physics from the University of Birmingham where they worked on the phenomenology of new heavy resonances for the ATLAS experiment.

John is a member of the AION collaboration and works on using atom interferometers to probe fundamental physics such as ultra-light dark matter and gravitational waves. Their work so far has been in developing noise characterisation for moving objects and atmospheric fluctuations around the AION-10 experiment, as well as developing the theory of atom interferometers in general. In future, John hopes to work on new models of dark matter probed by AION and similar experiments.
