Leverhulme Trust Fellow in Mathematics, Northumbria University, Newcastle

I am a research fellow at Northumbria University, interested in all things celestial! I have the wonderful job of browsing beautiful images of the Sun from satellites and telescopes. This is with a view to try and understand how energy is transferred through stars atmospheres in order to power the hot chromospheres, coronae and stellar winds.

I graduated from the University of Sheffield in 2008 with a MPHYS Mathematics and Physics degree and remained at Sheffield to complete my PhD in Applied Mathematics/Solar Physics. I accepted my first position as a research scientist there. In 2012 I was appointed as Anniversary Research Fellow in the Department of Mathematics and Information Sciences at Northumbria University and I was awarded a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship in June 2014 to continue my research.
