About Me

I grew up in London, and did my undergraduate studies there at Imperial College. I completed my masters project in the Astroparticle group of the University of Hamburg. Since July 2017 I've moved into high-energy neutrino physics and multi-messenger astronomy. I'm currently a PhD student at DESY Zeuthen, supervised by Anna Franckowiak.

I'm a member of two international scientific collaborations:

IceCube Neutrino Observatory

Buried beneath glacier ice at the South Pole, the cubic-kilometer IceCube detector is the world's largest neutrino observatory. Completed in 2011, IceCube discovered high-energy astrophysical neutrinos in 2013. Finding out where these neutrinos come from is the central goal of neutrino astronomy.

Zwicky Transient Facility (ZTF)

ZTF is an optical telescope on Mt Palomar, CA, USA. ZTF images the entire northern sky every three nights, and hunts for newly-detected objects (transients) that appear between observations. ZTF has already discovered hundreds of supernovae, seventeen Tidal Disruption Events (TDEs), and many other exciting transients.

My research interests include:

I am also enthusiastic about Science Communication and Outreach. I won the Zeuthen Science Slam (2018) and the first DESY-wide Science Slam (2019). I've also supported the annual International Cosmic Day and IceCube Masterclass outreach events for students.
