Lecturer of Physics and Astronomy, Cardiff University

I am the Ogden Science Lecturer for Cardiff University, working with the Ogden Trust to encourage take-up of physics at school and University. I also hold an STFC Public Engagement Fellowship, focussing on Gravitational Wave research.

My astronomy research focuses on the SPIRE instrument onboard the Herschel Space Observatory, which observes far-infrared and submillimetre light from gas and dust in our galaxy and beyond. My specific work is relating to the calibration of the instrument, ensuring that the data produced is as accurate as possible.
