Presentations

You may also be looking for my poster presentations, which are elsewhere.

Here are some links to slide decks from presentations that I have given, in reverse chronological order. Note that not every talk I have given is available here, so get in touch if you think something is missing. Similarly, if you spot a mistake do let me know.

2020

  • 12.10.2020 Similar to the talk last week, but a bit longer, I gave a talk to the Finnish physical sciences students [slides].
  • 6.10.2020 I gave an introductory presentation to the BSc Science students in Helsinki [slides]. There were some technical gremlins, so I recorded a video too.
  • 9.7.2020 I gave an online-Teilchentee to the group in Heidelberg [slides].
  • 6.4.2020 My first online talk! I gave the first CP3-online lecture [slides].

(note that most presentations prior to this date were developed against an older version of the reveal.js library, and may have minor formatting issues)

  • 4.12.2019 and 11.12.2019 I gave two seminars in the UK at the start of December, one at King's College London [slides] and the other at Liverpool [slides].
  • 28.11.2019 I am part of the Matter and Materials profiling action and gave a short talk about my work as part of a seminar introducing the research profiles of those supported by the scheme [slides].
  • 11.10.2019 I was invited to the Brda 2019 workshop Selected topics in high energy physics, astrophysics, and cosmology to give a talk about gravitational waves from first-order phase transitions [slides].

2018

2017

[I started using reveal.js to give talks in 2017, which is why this list starts here]

Technical details

I typically use reveal.js for giving presentations, with MathJax for equations and some funny icons from Font Awesome. My personalised bare-bones presentation template can be found here.
