I am an astrophysicist and post doctoral researcher studying baby black holes and twinkling galaxies. I have a PhD working with telescopes around Australia, in particular, the Murchison Widefield Array, a radio telescope based in the remote outback of Western Australia.
I have worked extensively as a science communicator and activist for women in STEM including leading a national movement, IncludeHer, which seeks to transform our approach to science education and include more authentic and relatable role models for all students while demonstrating the collaborative nature of modern science.
I am a proud bisexual and agender person and was diagnosed as an adult with ADHD. I am looking to help create safe spaces for other LGBTQIA+ and neurodiverse individuals.
