Alumni – Kirsty Duffy Experimental Physics

I’m a post-doc in particle physics, working on the T2K experiment. We study neutrino oscillation, sending neutrinos 300 km across Japan, before being detected in the giant Super-Kamiokande detector. I recently finished my PhD, in which I was trying to measure CP violation at T2K, to see if neutrinos can explain why we have a universe made of matter instead of antimatter – pretty big questions! I’m originally from the North-East of England, but have been in Oxford for my undergrad and PhD degrees. I love to travel (that’s one of my favourite things about my job – I get to go to Japan four times a year) and physics has given me great opportunities to see the world. When I’m not working, I can be found singing karaoke, drinking wine, or catching up with friends.
