About me

I am a Lecturer in Physics at Royal Holloway, University of London. I began my research career at the University of Southampton working with Ian Jones and Reinhard Prix where I completed by PhD in 2016 on Timing variations in neutron stars: models, inference and their implications for gravitational waves. Following this I held a postdoc position at the Albert Einstein Institute, Hannover before moving in 2018 to Monash University in Australia to work as an Assistant Lecturer with Paul Lasky. I then briefly joined the Institute for Cosmology and Gravitation (ICG) at the University of Portsmouth working with Laura Nuttall as a Research Fellow before taking up my current post. My research interest is the relativistic astrophysics of neutron stars and black holes. I am a member of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration and co-chair the Collaborations largest and most active observational science group, the Compact Binary Group.
