I’m a Physicist working in the Seismology group under Tarje Nissen-Meyer. I aim to adapt terrestrial axisymmetric spectral element methods to investigate solar seismology, with the aim of gaining a better understanding of the Sun’s structure and variability.

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.

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.
