Chris Rogers read Physics at Somerville College Oxford (MPhys, 2002) and completed his PhD thesis, 'Beam Dynamics in a Muon Ionisation Cooling Channel' under Ken Long in 2007 working on the Muon Ionisation Cooling Experiment (MICE). He subsequently joined the Intense Beams Group at STFC's Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) where he has worked on modelling particle accelerators together with design for high acceptance, tight focussing lattices suitable for use in ionisation cooling channels.
Chris has a detailed knowledge of beam dynamics, with particular specialisation in linear and non-linear dynamics in solenoid systems, and several years experience as a software developer, using C++ and Python programming languages. In addition, Chris has knowledge of particle physics detector design and modelling.
Chris played a leading role in the International Design Study for a Neutrino Factory and Neutrino Factory portion of EuroNu, coordinating the muon front end section of these international studies.
Additionally, Chris is project manager for the MAUS code. This hybrid code is designed in the first instance for the detailed simulation, detector reconstruction and analysis of MICE. However, the code has been applied to simulation of a number of different accelerator set-ups and can be used to simulate most particle accelerators.
