I'm Morgan, a PhD student in the Astronomy and Astrophysics group at the University of Warwick, supervised by Professor Don Pollacco.
My work is split into two main parts -
- The detection of M-dwarf flares in globular clusters with Warwick's TIRO telescope.
- Simulating the small planet population detectable with the PLATO space telescope, due to launch in late 2026.
I lead weekly physics examples classes for 25 undergraduate students as part of the PX161 module.
My responsibilities include grading assignments and delivering two weekly classes (one as lead, one as support).
The subjects studied are Classical Mechanics and Special Relativity, Physics Foundations (thermodynamics), Electromagnetism and Quantum Phenomena.
