I completed my MSci in Geophysics at Imperial College, London and completed my PhD. with the Desert Fireball Network team in Perth, Australia. I am now a postdoctoral researcher at Curtin and am the project manager of the DFN, and now Global Fireball Observatory.

I am an avid supporter of inspiring the next generation in the fields of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) as a female role model.

I have participated in radio and TV broadcasts and am looking to start participating in the Conversation.
