I'm a first year postgraduate CGAFD student studying Magnetic Helicity in the sun, as a conserved, flowing quantity. I also hope to develop it as a tool for investigating complicated, or strange topologies and shapes.

My research is currently focused on the use of real-world data to follow the development of magnetic helicity in the solar body and surrounding coronosphere, and how this can be used to further develop our understanding of current, and future space weather.

My primary supervisor is Mitchell Berger, and my secondary supervisor is Claire Foullon.
