Mike Seymour (Team Leader)
Mike Seymour is Professor of Particle Physics and Chair of Theoretical Physics in the School of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Manchester. He is the MCnet Network Co-ordinator, Project Manager and Manchester Team Leader. He is also an author of Herwig.
Matthew de Angelis
Matthew is a PhD student at Manchester working on CVolver, an amplitude level parton shower.
Kiran Ostrolenk is a PhD student working on NLO Matching within Herwig.
Kiran has also currently implemented helicity recycling in MadGraph. This means making sure that an external spinor or internal propagator is only calculated once at a given helicity. This is important when summing an amplitude over all possible helicities. This has resulted in a 50% speed increase for complex processes such as gg->ttbargg and pp->W+W-jj.
Baptiste Cabouat is a PhD student who works on dShower, a double PDF parton shower.
Jack is a PhD student working on CVolver, an amplitude level parton shower.
