I am a Post-Doctoral researcher in the Blackett Laboratory within the Space and Atmospheric Physics research group. Prior to this, I completed a Ph.D. in Physics at the Mullard Space Science Laboratory, University College London, which included time at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, New Mexico, and NASA Goddard Space Flight Centre, Maryland. I am a 2017 recipient of UCL's Alan Johnstone Award for Scientific Achievement.
My interests within plasma simulations focus on particle-scale kinetic physics and large system-scale phenomena, and the interplay between these. To this end I develop and use a range of magnetohydrodynamic, particle-in-cell, hybrid and test-particle simulation codes to study fundamental plasma phenomena across the solar system and beyond. I also actively apply my research to the development of Space Weather forecasting capabilities.
I am an active member of Imperial As One - the Universities' Race Equality Advisory Group, and participate in outreach activities aimed at increasing equality, diversity and inclusion within the STEM fields.
