My research centres on star formation. In particular, how stars move and interact in their first few million years (and the potential impact on planet formation), and how we can compare observations to theory/simulations. At Sheffield I work with Claire Esau (Postdoc) and Dan Griffiths, Rebecca Arnold, and Suraiya Atker (PhD students).
I also teach several astronomy courses: 'Our Evolving Universe' (PHY111), 'Extrasolar Planets and Astrobiology' (PHY229), and 'Star formation and Evolution (PHY404 with Paul Crowther). I also supervise 3rd and 4th year projects, run first year induction, am a personal tutor and PhD mentor.
