About Me

August 12, 2018

I am an astrophysicist, currently working in the astrophysics group at the University of Exeter. I completed my PhD in 2019 under the supervision of Prof Tim Naylor. My current research interests firmly straddle the adjacent fields of star formation, stellar evolution, and exoplanet science. Thanks to my time demonstrating a number of modules during...

What I’ve Been Listening To – January 2017

February 1, 2017

Port Cities – On the Nights You Stay Home This is yet another group that convinces me that Canadians are great at music. Any indipendent artist supergroup of sorts, this the combination of 3 different solo acts in a glorious song writing, music producing partnership. If the chilled beat with well produced drums wasn’t enough,...

An Undergrad Primer on Vectors

September 7, 2015

[Could not find the bibliography file(s) I wrote a post a while ago with my tips for people that are starting off a physics degree. Just after I published it a friend and fellow post graduate, Sam Cooper, pointed out to me that I made a fairly blaring omission in my summary of undergraduate physics. Vectors. I...

My Research

May 26, 2015

My research interests span a wide variety of topics. My masters research focussed on studies of extinction and interstellar dust. Throughout my PhD, my work focussed on observational studies of the evolution of stellar clusters, low-mass stars and characterisation of exoplanet host stars. These studies have made extensive use of cutting edge observational data from...

Modeling Atmospheres with the Unified Model

February 24, 2015

In my last couple of posts I’ve been going through some of the basic principles of fluid mechanics. From some of the basic approximations that make the equation possible to analytically solve in this post, to some more specialised theory in the context of planetary systems in this post. In these posts we’ve been slowly...
