I am a Herchel Smith Fellow in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge, UK. I was previously a Research Fellow at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, where I also completed my PhD in 2021. Prior to that, I got my MSci in Physics at the University of Birmingham in 2018. Check out my research page for details about my current work.

I wrote and illustrated a book! It's called Planetymology and it's about how the English-language names of the planets in our Solar System evolved, from their roots in the languages of early Europeans.

I also produced and illustrated a colouring book about Women in Physics throughout history, which was researched and largely written by my friend and colleague Dr Debatri Chattopadhyay.

I love talking about science (and words, and pasta, and snails...) to anyone who's interested - see my Talks+Outreach page for a list of selected invited academic and public talks, panels, podcasts, interviews...

My work benefits from combining creative and analytic processes, a pairing that I first strengthened through still-life drawing. I still enjoy drawing and try to practice when I have a spare afternoon. See my drawing page for a small gallery of various sketches.
