Research interests: Non-linear structure formation in modified gravity models, Lagrangian perturbation theory, fast/approximate simulation methods
I am a third year PhD student at the ICG supervised by Prof Kazuya Koyama, Dr Gong-Bo Zhao, and Prof David Wands. My work so far has been to extend the COLA approach for simulating dark matter structure formation to include the effects of both massive neutrinos and modified gravity. I am also interested in using redshift-space distortions to distinguish between LCDM and modified gravity models in the presence of massive neutrinos.
I carried out my undergrad degree in Physics and Astronomy at Durham and was supervised by Dr Baojiu Li for my final year project on the effect of modified gravity on the ability of Type Ia supernovae to act as standard candles.
In my spare time I like to play Ultimate Frisbee (yes, it is a real sport!), cook exciting food, and read sci-fi/fantasy novels.Qualifications: MPhys Physics and Astronomy (Durham)
