I am an Assistant Professor and Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellow starting at Warwick in 2018. My research is focussed on planet formation, planet evolution and disc evolution mostly using a variety of numerical techniques.

Protoplanetary discs are discs of gas and dust that swirl around a central star. Once upon a time our Sun would have had one of these discs, and our Solar System planets would have formed out of it. I run hydrodynamical simulations, using high performance computing facilities, to understand how planets form and evolve in young protoplanetary discs.

More details about my research interests can be found here

I will be offering PhD projects at Warwick from September 2018 on projects related to protoplanetary discs and interactions between planets and protoplanetary discs. Please email me if you are interested.
