About

I study gravitational-wave astronomy: how we can use gravitational-waves (tiny ripples in spacetime generated by changing gravitational fields) to learn about the Universe. I am a theoretical astrophysicist, and am interested in what we can learn about gravity from astronomical measurements as well as what we can learn about astrophysical objects, such as black holes, from gravitational interactions.

I am currently working as part of the LIGO collaboration. My work is centred on figuring out the best way to extract information from gravitational-wave measurements.

I studied for my PhD at the Institute of Astronomy, University of Cambridge under the supervision of Jonathan Gair. My thesis was about what we could learn from strong-field probes of gravity and, in particular, gravitational radiation.
