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...

Beginning with BibTeX – Making Referencing in LaTex as Easy as Pi

August 14, 2016

[mathjax] It’s no secret that physicists love using LaTeX to write papers. This has many practical advantages, such as the ability to completely unlink your content from the formatting,┬ávery flexible layout tools and a veritable smorgasbord of packages to do everything from change the colour of your text to allow you to programmatically create plots...

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...

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...
