About me

Born in Belfast, I was educated at Methodist College Belfast to A-level, before heading to Christ’s College, Cambridge to study Natural Sciences, specialising in theoretical physics.

After completing a four year BA and MSci degree course, I moved to the Astronomy Unit at Queen Mary to study for a PhD in theoretical cosmology, supervised by Prof James Lidsey and Prof Reza Tavakol. I then sealed my fate by accepting a three year postdoctoral research associate position back in Cambridge in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, followed by just over a year in the Theoretical Physics Group at Imperial College, London.

In January 2011 I returned to the Astronomy Unit, initially as a postdoc, and from October 2014 as a Royal Society University Research Fellow and proleptic lecturer.
