I am a PhD Student in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Leeds working with Dr Catherine Walsh and Dr John Ilee. I gained my BSc in Physics from the University of Aberdeen, my hometown, in 2016. I am interested in the formation, composition and detection of (exo)planets. Currently my work centres around the structure and composition of protoplanetary disks. I will be joining Prof. Ewine van Dishoeck’s group at Leiden Observatory in Spring 2020.
Aside from my research, I am passionate about science communication. I have been involved with the organisation Pint of Science for a number of years and coordinated Leeds Pint of Science 2019. I have also given a number of general interest astronomy talks myself and am always looking for more opportunities to do so.
