Personal profile

Research Statement

I am a second year PhD student at Queen’s University Belfast, working on the detection and occurrence rates of extra-solar planets. I graduated from the University of Southampton with a first class Masters degree in Astrophysics with Year Abroad. I spent the final year of my degree at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Massachusetts, USA where I completed a research project on exoplanetary atmospheres.
