I’m a planetary scientist specialising in terrestrial planets and icy moons. I’m currently funded by the UK Space Agency on an Advanced Aurora Research Fellowship. My research combines experiments, theory, and observations, to better understand the geological evolution of solar system bodies.
I’m also passionate about engaging people with my research, and also with science communnication in general. This has involved a wide range of activities, from giving talks and being a STEM abassador, through to running school masterclasses.
Recent spacecraft images are often breathtaking, and reveal planetary bodies in our solar system in unprecedented detail. The nature of my research means that I am often lucky enough to work with these stunning images of other worlds.
