I am a theoretical astrophysicist (a.k.a. the best job in the world).

More precisely, I am a member (postdoctoral fellow) in Astrophysics at the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton (my official profile is here). Previously, from 2017-2021 I was a PhD student in the Astrophysics group at DAMTP, University of Cambridge, supervised by Dr Roman Rafikov; I was also a member of Emmanuel College, Cambridge. For my thesis work I was awarded the International Astronomical Union’s 2021 PhD Prize. From 2013-2017 I was an undergraduate in Physics at Merton College, Oxford.

My research concerns the dynamics of galaxies, globular clusters, binary stars, and planetary systems; compact object mergers (LIGO/Virgo gravitational wave progenitors); and the kinetic theory of stellar systems and plasmas. You can watch me talk about some of it here. If you would like to know more, you can contact me.
