Researcher at Sydney University Physics Education Research Group, University of Sydney

My background consists of a B.Science with a double major in Mathematics and Physics, including First class Honours in Physics. I am currently researching the effectiveness of types of resources in teaching physics as a member of the Sydney University Physics Education Research (SUPER) Group. I have worked extensively in communicating science in a range of settings, from radio, livestream videos on YouTube to crowds at the Star Gazing Live World Record attempt in May. I particularly focus on encouraging females to pursue careers in physics and STEM. My previous astronomical research has included estimating the dark matter content of nearby radio galaxies at Sheffield University in the UK. At SIfA, I built on previous work using the VAMPIRES Instrument, a differential polarimetric interferometric aperture mask, to detect and model the dust around the red supergiant star, MuCep.
