Intro

I am currently an Astronomy grad student at the University of Hawaii Manoa, having previously completed an MPhys Astrophysics degree at the University of Edinburgh. My main research interest is the study of exoplanets - I'm fascinated by the broad diversity of exoplanetary systems and their potential for habitability.

I am bisexual and use he/him pronouns, and I'm a strong advocate for greater inclusion of underrepresented groups in STEM and in all walks of life. In my spare time, I like playing video games and binge-watching any interesting TV shows I can get my hands on.

Research

My central research focus is the study of exoplanets, especially the direct imaging thereof.

Previous research projects

  • Investigating brown dwarf variability

    Over 2020-21, I identified variable brown dwarfs in Kepler/K2 data using the Lomb-Scargle periodogram under Dr. Beth Biller. This was the subject of my Master's thesis, and constitutes the largest ever survey of optical variability in brown dwarfs using space-based instrumentation.
  • Direct detections of protoplanetary disks

    Over summer 2020 I used PSF subtraction techniques to attempt to uncover protoplanetary disks in HST/STIS observations of three M-type stars. This was done under Prof. Max Millar-Blanchaer and Dr. Bin Ren as part of the Caltech SURF program. For two of these stars, we detected disk structure out to greater radial extents than ever previously observed. I have since written a paper on this work, which has been published in MNRAS.

  • Discovering high-redshift quiescent galaxies

    My work with Dr. Adam Carnall finding high-redshift quiescent galaxies using the Python package BAGPIPES found ten robust galaxies at z > 3. This research was funded by the University of Edinburgh's Career Development Summer Scholarship programme, and my results were the catalyst for the work in Carnall, Walker, McLure et al. (2020). This work also led to a successful JWST Cycle 1 observing proposal that I am a Co-I on.
