Brief Summary

I am an Early Career Research Fellow currently at Curtin University. I obtained my PhD at the University of Sydney, where I worked on the Australia Telescope 20GHz (AT20G) survey. I then continued to work as a Super Science Fellow in radio transients at USYD where I helped to create the Variable And Slow Transients (VAST) prototype pipeline, including the source finding algorithm Aegean. My interests are in radio transients including: supernovae, gamma-ray bursts, and tidal disruption events.

I lead two projects that use the Murchison Wide-field Array (MWA). The first project uses the scintillation of extragalactic radio sources to trace the turbulent structure of gas within the Milky Way. The second project uses the MWA to search for radio emission from fireballs as they burn a path through our atmosphere.

Teaching

I teach the first half of Physics 1 and Physics 2.
