Welcome to my homepage. I am a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Central Lancashire’s Jeremiah Horrocks Institute in Preston. I work with Dr Dimitris Stamatellos as a member of his Theoretical Star Formation and Exoplanets Group on various aspects of accretion disc physics, focussing on the interactions between discs and binaries or planetary systems across astrophysical contexts. I am interested in both how discs can affect the dynamical evolution of the system, and how these effects might be observed. I am a part of the Millenium ALMA Disc (MAD) Nucleus, helping to search for forming planets in protoplanetary discs.
Before coming to Preston, I was a postdoc in the Numerical Hydrodynamics Group at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile’s Instituto de Astrofísica in Santiago, working with Professor Jorge Cuadra. Prior to moving to Chile I completed my PhD in the Theoretical Astrophysics Group at the University of Leicester, where I worked primarily on simulations of planet-disc interactions with Dr Richard Alexander.
