I am a DARK Research Fellow at the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen, working primarily on supernovae and exotic extragalactic transients. I am heavily involved in several optical transient surveys, such as ePESSTO/ePESSTO+, the Dark Energy Survey and I am about to begin working with a new survey, the Young Supernova Experiment.
My research is centred around all things supernovae; from the behaviour of their lightcurves to their host galaxy environments in which they occur. I have a weakness for an extremely luminous subclass of supernovae called “Superluminous Supernovae”, but am interested in any transients which push our current understanding of stellar evolution!
Before moving to Copenhagen, I was formerly a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Southampton (2017-2019). I completed my PhD in astrophysics in 2017 at the University of Warwick.
