I am a DPhil candidate in Astrophysics under the supervision of Prof. Pedro Ferreira and Dr Harry Desmond. I am also the Graduate Teaching and Research Scholar at Oriel College.
My research focuses on using the morphology and kinematics of galaxies to learn about galaxy formation and to constrain new Physics. By new Physics I mean theories beyond the standard models of cosmology (ΛCDM) and particle physics (SM). In particular, I am investigating whether there are new fields mediating gravitational forces which can manifest themselves as fifth forces and, if so, determine how these fields and forces are screened in different environments.
I previously studied for my BA and MSci at Trinity College, University of Cambridge. For my Part III (Masters) Project, I was supervised by Dr Will Handley, where I worked on 'The Conformal Boundary at the End of the Universe.'
