Post-doctoral Research Fellow

I am a Post-doctoral Research Fellow in the theoretical cosmology group, and a Fellow of All Souls college.
The major focus of my research is theories of modified gravity and their observational consequences. These theories are proposed in order to explain the accelerating expansion of our universe, and testing them is a key target for current and future experiments. I am particularly interested in developing mathematical tools to link theoretical and observational work, and constructing novel, model-independent probes of gravity.

In 2012 I tutored third-year undergraduates in General Relativity at St Catherine's College.
