I am currently a first year PhD student in the Astronomy and Astrophysics group at the University of Warwick. My supervisor is Danny Steeghs, and I work as part of the GOTO team, searching for optical counterparts to gravitational wave-driven merger events.

Teaching and Outreach:
I am currently a problems class tutor for the first year modules PX145/PX148.
I am always keen to give outreach talks to schools and astronomy societies, on a variety of topics -- previously I've done talks on the solar system, exoplanets, asteroids, and astrophotography. Please contact me for more information!
