Postgraduate

I’m a Physicist working in the Seismology group under Tarje Nissen-Meyer and the Stellar Evolution group in the Department of Physics under Philipp Podsiadlowski .I completed a Masters’ Degree at Imperial College London in 2016, and a summer course in space science at the Swedish Institute of Space Research the same year.

My work involves modelling seismic wave propagation in fluid media, focussing on both terrestrial (ocean/atmosphere) and stellar applications. You can read my latest paper here: 10.1093/gji/ggaa248

Outreach projects that I have worked on include the Imperial Festival in 2015 and 2016, the Science Museum ‘Sharman 25’ event, and the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition 2017 and 2019.
