Grad Student

I am a DPhil student working with Prof. Angela Taylor and Prof. Mike Jones on the C-Band All-Sky Survey (C-BASS). This experiment will map the whole sky at 5GHz in intensity and polarisation. The C-BASS data will be used in conjunction with other CMB data-sets to improve our component separation capabilities, a vital part of the work towards detection of primordial B-modes.

In addition to my scientific work, I am interested in the role of science in development and policy. I have participated in the Newton Fund Thailand Radio Astronomy programme, which aims to support Thailand in building scientific and technical capacity. Over the summer of 2018 I undertook a policy internship in the Government Office for Science, supporting the work of the Government Chief Scientific Adviser.

I am a demonstrator in the first year electromagnetism labs, and a tutor for second year electromagnetism.
