About Me!

Born in northern Scotland, I am now researching for a PhD at the University of Birmingham

Research Interests

I'm interested in gravitational wave detection and also atom interferometry

I'm currently investigating what happens when optical waves are distorted in interferometry experiments.

With support from the Astrophysics department, I lead and organize a range of outreach activities, including school visits, technical demonstrations, artistic collaborations and science festivals.
