About Me

I am a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellow at the Institute of Astronomy, University of Cambridge. I am interested in planets, debris discs, dust, comets, asteroids and the formation of Earth, with a particular focus on the structure and evolution of planetary systems.

Previous postdocs include IPAG, Grenoble and the University of Bristol. My PhD on 'The Post-main sequence Evolution of Planetary Systems' was at the Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge, supervised by Dr. Mark Wyatt. I graduated from the University of Oxford in 2007, with a Masters of Physics.
