I am an astronomer at the University of St Andrews, Scotland. My research focuses on understanding magnetic fields of both stars and extrasolar planets (planets that orbit stars other than the Sun). I began my academic career at the University of St Andrews where I completed an Undergraduate degree in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics before then embarking on a PhD in Astronomy under the supervison of Professor Moira Jardine. In June 2014 I will be moving to Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona to work with Dr Evgenya Shkolnik as a postdoctoral researcher. For more information about my research see below.
My non-academic life began in Pembrokeshire, South Wales. I am a keen photographer and traveller. Some of the photos I have accumulated during my travels can be seen below.
