We Discovered an FUor

December 20, 2018

We discovered a very rare kind of star – in fact there are only 25 stars of its type known to exist. The fact that we found it is amazing, but the way we found it was even more interesting. We caught it red handed during an FUor outburst – a period of intense flaring...

About Me

August 12, 2018

I am an astrophysicist, currently working in the astrophysics group at the University of Exeter. Under the supervision of Professor Tim Naylor, my PhD project involves understanding the evolution and characteristics of M-dwarfs. By harnessing the power of the second data release of the Gaia mission, we have been able to develop methodology for measuring...

My Research

May 26, 2015

I have a wide variety of interests within astrophysics that include the physics driving the evolution of low-mass stars, the nature of young stellar objects and the coupling between young stellar systems and how this effects the occurance, evolution and characterisation of exoplanets and their atmospheres. All Publications Understanding the Characteristics and Evolution of Low-mass...
