Astronomer, Developer, and Imaging Expert

I am an astrophysicist, software and algorithm developer, blending science and methodology to learn more about the Universe. 

ABOUT ME

Multidisciplinary Astronomer

I have been interested in the Universe since I started my undergraduate degree in mathematics and physics (not wanting to miss out on either!) 
Being interested in these subjects led me to complete a Master’s thesis in theoretical condensed matter physics, to understand the quantum tunnelling properties of graphene in strong magnetic fields.
Then I trained in observational radio astronomy and astrophysics, studying the largest scale structures and magnetic fields in our Universe. I completed a PhD in imaging and signal reconstruction methods for radio astronomy at University College London.

I am now a Dunlap Fellow at the Dunlap Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics in Toronto. I am involved in the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) and the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME).


Currently, my astronomy research profile spans observational astrophysics, wide-field and polarimetric imaging, computationally distributed algorithm and software development. I have peer-reviewed these topics in astronomy journals. I have also won a few awards and given presentations. You can see my Curriculum Vitae for more information.
