I’m a second year PhD student studying astronomy at the OU. My interests include variable stars, the operation of telescope hardware and developing astronomical software.

I am one of the primary science users of the Open University’s PIRATE and COAST telescopes located in Tenerife, and I also help to run and maintain the telescopes, including acting as night duty astronomer for some of the OU astronomy courses.

My research at the OU focuses on writing software for the automated reduction of scientific data obtained by PIRATE, and the long-term follow up of transient variable stars identified and published by the Gaia Alerts team.
