Postdoctoral Researcher


I work with data from the Kepler Space Telescope to study the interior structure of stars. This involves observations of stellar oscillations using a technique called asteroseismology - analogous to the use of seismic activity on Earth to learn about its interior. I also have a keen interest in finding new binary stars and planets, and using them to advance our knowledge of star and planet formation. Outside of work, I enjoy cycling, soccer and board games.
