About Me

I am a PhD Candidate at the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics (RSAA) at the Australian National University (ANU). I study protoplanetary discs and planet formation, specifically the environment and conditions under which planets form. My supervisors are Dr Christoph Federrath, A/Prof Mike Ireland and A/Prof Penny King.

Research Interests

I am interested in planet formation, specifically protoplanetary discs and the environments in which planets are formed. My current research uses the FLASH code to simulate a protostellar disc and trace its environment as the system evolves. Previous work for my Masters degree involved using KeckII NIRC2 observations of Herbig Ae transition discs and simulating their structure to detect asymmetries (submitted to MNRAS). I also completed an undergraduate project looking at solar quakes.
