Institute of Astronomy


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 at St Edmund's College and a member of the College's governing body. 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.

Teaching and Supervisions


I am teaching and chairing the postgraduate student presentation practice session at the Institute of Astronomy.

In addition, I am teaching Physics 1A (first-year undergraduate Physics) supervision lectures at multiple colleges. You may access my problem sheets and lecture notes via the following link.
