I research extrasolar planets - planets around other stars - and focus on developing and applying new data science approaches for detecting and characterizing them.
At the moment, I'm most excited about using using radio astronomy to study planets' magnetic interactions with their host stars; and applying differentiable models of physical optics to hardware design and data analysis for exoplanet direct imaging. Recently I have been working on a survey of naked-eye stars in Kepler, K2, and TESS, to search for pulsating stars and transiting planets.
I completed my doctorate in 2017 at Oxford, and from 2017-20 was a NASA Sagan Fellow at the NYU Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics and Center for Data Science. I'm now a Lecturer in Astrophysics and DECRA Fellow at the University of Queensland.
