Personal profile


I am a computational astrophysicist working at the interface of theory and observations. My work utilises numerical simulations, novel statistical methods and artifical intelligence.


I joined the University of Portsmouth as a Dennis Sciama postdoctoral fellow in October 2022. Before this I completed a postdoctoral appointment at the University of Hertfordshire with Prof. James Geach, and a JSPS short-term fellowship at the University of Tokyo with Prof. Masami Ouchi.

I completed my Ph.D. at the University of Sussex in July 2019 under the supervision of Prof. Peter Thomas and Prof. Stephen Wilkins.

Research Interests

My research interests span a broad range of topics in galaxy evolution, though I am particularly focused on early galaxy formation in the first billion years after the big bang. This nascent period in the Universe's history is now being probed in unprecedented detail by a number of state of the art observatories, such as the James Webb Space telescope.

I run and analyse large numerical cosmological simulations, creating mock observations of the real Universe to better understand the data, and understand the physical processes driving galaxy transformation. I also employ artifical intelligence techniques, using these to improve the performance of the simulations and reveal new insights.
