I am a Royal Society University Research Fellow who works on various theoretical and observational aspects of planet formation and the end results – planets and debris disks – as seen around nearby stars.
Among other topics, I have recently worked on transiting dust populations, what debris disks may tell us about the alignment of orbits in stellar and planetary systems, and the possible impact of exo-Zodiacal dust on future missions to image Earth-like planets around other stars. See my other website for more details.
I am involved in many collaborations, including ongoing surveys such as LBTI HOSTS and NaCo ISPY.

I am always happy to consider supporting fellowship applications, such as those offered by the Royal Society (Newton), the Royal Astronomical Society, and our own Warwick Chancellor's International Scholarship.
