About me

From 2011—2014, I was a postdoctoral fellow at CSIRO Astronomy & Space Science, where I worked with Dr Naomi McClure-Griffiths and the GASKAP team. In my research, I use both observations and numerical techniques to study the diffuse interstellar medium of our Milky Way Galaxy. I am particularly interested in the structure, dynamics, and energy transport (which inevitably means turbulence) in the warm ionised medium.

My CV and lists of my publications are available here.

I completed my PhD in Astronomy in 2011 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. At UW, I worked with Dr Matt Haffner and the Wisconsin H-Alpha Mapper (WHAM) team.

As an undergraduate at Oberlin College, I studied physics and astronomy and worked with Prof Dan Stinebring, using pulsar scintillation to study the ISM.
