I am the Leverhulme/Isaac Newton Fellow at the Institute of Astronomy. My research interest includes multi-wavelength observations of AGN, black hole X-ray transients or any other object that is accreting.

I am also a College Fellow (type-B) at St Edmund's College, a member of the College's governing body, and one of the Fellow's Stewards. When I am not in my office, you may also find me teaching Physics 1A supervisions at Robinson College and Christ's College or feasting in Colleges' formal hall dinners.
