About Me

I am currently a NASA Hubble fellow working at the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton. Prior to moving to Princeton, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics. I completed my PhD at the Institute of Astronomy in Cambridge, investigating protoplanetary disc evolution and dispersal under the supervision of Professor Cathie Clarke. I undertook my undergraduate studies at the Univeristy of Cambridge, Churchill College.

My research interests are within the fields of star and planet formation, with emphasis on the radiative and hydrodynamic pheomena involved. I am currently involved in several projects with various groups exploring the various effects high energy radiation will have on the circumstellar enviornment.
