My research involves creating a cross-match of stars in the optical and X-ray wavelengths using the SuperWASP and XMM catalogues with the purpose of studying the rotation-activity relation in main sequence stars. Supervised by Professor Andrew Norton, Dr Ulrich Kolb, and Dr Jimena Gorfinkiel.
Prior to my PhD, I completed an MPhys in Physics with Space Science at the University of Leicester. My master's projects involved studying the formation of hot Jupiters, and using SuperWASP to study the flux variations of NGC 5548.
Astronomy, astrophysics, stellar formation and evolution.
