About Me

I am a postdoctoral researcher studying astrophysics at the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. I have a diverse range of research interests, but am predominantly working on understanding the formation and evolution of galaxies over cosmic time through observations. I am currently working with Dr. Marc Rafelski at STScI understanding the role of star-forming galaxies in ionizing the Universe using the Hubble Space Telescope and Keck Telescope. At STScI, I am a member of the Low Density Universe community and Galaxies research group. I was previously at the University of Oxford where I did my PhD in astrophysics as a Hintze Scholar supervised by Professor Roger Davies. I have worked as part of the KMOS Cluster Survey team with collaborators at the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics, Germany, and Durham University, UK. Following my exchange year at the University of California, Santa Cruz, USA, I collaborated with researchers there and other members of the PHAT and SPLASH survey teams across the USA. I am an experienced observer and have gathered data using the Keck Observatory in Hawaii, USA and the Very Large Telescope in Chile. More information about my research can be found here and a link to my curriculum vitae can be found below.

I am passionate about increasing the diversity of astrophysics and academia in general. During my time as an Events Coordinator for the Oxford Women in Physics Society and as President of the Christ Church Graduate Common Room, I worked to raise awareness of the issues faced by minority groups.
