Dr Robert Appleby

Role: Reader




I am a lecturer in the high energy particle physics group of the University of Manchester.  My primary research is into the physics of particle accelerators, including beam dynamics and lattice design, and I am involved in the International Linear Collider and Large Hadron Collider projects.

I am a member of the LHCb collaboration at the LHC, where I am responsible for machine induced backgrounds.
