Simon Plätzer is a Marie Curie IE fellow at Durham and visiting fellow at Manchster. Simon has lead the development of the dipole shower module and is leading the inclusion of next-to-leading order matrix elements in Herwig++ based on the Matchbox framework. The systematics, uncertainties and details of matching and merging schemes are his main topic of research. He is also working on subleading Nc effects in partons showers and has been involved in recent state-of-the-art calculations of processes for hadron colliders at NLO.
