I'm a PhD student at Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics, at the University of Manchester, under the supervision of Professor Albert Zijlstra and Dr. Ciska Kemper. I work on dusty AGB stars in local galactic group as part of the Spitzer SAGE team. I am also investigating the stellar content of nearby galaxies M31 and M32 in collaboration with Dr. Mike Rich at UCLA. To find out more about what I do see my research page.
In my spare time I can be found with a microphone tracking down other unsuspecting astronomers to interview for the Jodcast. I am an avid sports fan and love mountain biking and swimming. I also like to travel, visit ancient historical sites, and at the end of a long day curling up with a good book.
