PhD Student - Astrophysics


I am currently a PhD student, studying the climate of terrestrial planets and their long term evolution and interaction with the planetary system as a whole. I completed my intergrated masters in Physics (MPhys) here, obtaining a first.

My masters research project was supervised by Prof. Nathan Mayne, where we investigated the effect that stellar type has on the climate of tidally locked Earth-like exoplanets, using the UK Met Office Unified Model. This work was finalised and published during the start of my PhD.
