• About me

  • I graduated with a MPhys Physics with Astronomy degree from Cardiff University in 2014 and I'm now working as a graduate research assistant at the Physics and Astronomy department of the University of Denver.

    In 2014/15 I conducted research using data from the AKARI satellite with Dr T Ueta and did some preliminary investigations of V367 Cyg with Dr J Hoffman.

    In 2015/16 I have begun my full-time research with Dr Hoffman and recently collaborated with Jamie Lomax (a previous DU grad student) on the eclipsing binary system V356 Sgr.

    I currently work with Dr Hoffman on simulations of eclipsing binary systems, focusing on the polarization signals, using a Fortran-based simulation code. In 2017/18 we have been receiving data from the Sourthern African Large Telescope (SALT), an 11-m telescope with a spectropolarimetry instrument, the Robert Stobie Spectrograph (RSS). Initial results have been published in the Research Notes of the AAS
