Welcome!

I am a PhD student in Theoretical Astrophysics at the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics (RSAA), Australian National University in Canberra. My research focusses on two topics in star formation: the connection between mass accretion and outflow generation in disks around forming stars, and the properties of adiabatic turbulence in the interstellar medium. Previous to this I completed my undergraduate degree and honours at the Centre for Space Physics, University of Newcastle. My honours work involved modeling the Kelvin-Helmholtz instability at the interface between the magnetosphere and the magnetosheath in near-earth space, the magnetopause.

Previous Qualifications: BSc (Hons) (Math/Phys) University of Newcastle
