Research interests: Large-Scale Structure; Bayesian Inference; Theoretical Cosmology
I am part of the Large-Scale Structure group at the ICG, supervised by Prof Will Percival, Dr Davide Bianchi and Dr Santiago Avila. My current project concerns the theoretical aspects of clustering measurements made with galaxy surveys, employing Bayesian inference, covariance estimation and discrete Fourier transform methods to constrain cosmological models.
After finishing my A-Levels in Dorset, I read the Mathematical Tripos at Clare College, University of Cambridge, before graduating with BA Hons 1ˢᵗ Class and MMath with Distinction in June 2017. I specialised in Theoretical Physics in the Part III Tripos, and wrote my essay “Primordial Gravitational Waves from Cosmic Inflation” under the supervision of Prof Anthony Challinor at DAMTP.Qualifications: BA MMath (Cantab)
Achievements and recognition: (Pre-PhD period) Horne Prize, Harry Patten Prize, Amiya Banerji Prize, Foundation Scholarship | Clare College, Cambridge; Cambridge Overseas Trust Scholarship 2013–2017 | Cambridge Trust.
