Research interests: Modified Gravity, Massive Gravity, Cosmology.
I graduated from Southampton University in the summer of 2017 in Physics (MPHYS) with a first class honours. In my final year I worked on a project entitled “The Global Structure of Spacetime”, which focused on how one can view the structure of different spacetime metrics in 2D and how we can gain information regarding infinities and boundaries of the spacetime.
Furthermore, working in the GR group at Southampton, I investigated how the parameters of two colliding black holes can be estimated by analysing the gravitational wave signal that LIGO receives.
Currently I am working with Prof. Kazuya Koyama and Dr Emir Gumrukcuoglu on non-linear perturbations in massive bigravity for a phenomenological study.
In my spare time I enjoy watching football and other sports, more specifically I “enjoy” watching Plymouth Argyle attempt to play football.Qualifications: Master of Physics (MPHYS)-1st Class Honours, Southampton University.
