About

I studied Physics at the University of Warwick from 2005 to 2009, obtaining a 1st class MPhys degree. I joined the astronomy group at the University of St Andrews in September 2009, working with Andrew Cameron. My Phd subject is the interactions between transiting exoplanets, particularly hot Jupiters, and their host stars. I'm also a member of the WASP consortium, and carry out follow-up photometric observations of exoplanet candidates using the James Gregory telescope at the University of St Andrews observatory. I coordinate the group's mobile planetarium, organising shows for school children around Fife. In addition, I coordinate the postgraduate teaching and demonstrating for the astronomy modules run by the School of Physics and Astronomy. In my spare time I compete with the University of St Andrews Lifesaving Club, and captain the A-team. I'm also a member of the university's symphony orchestra, playing the bassoon.
