I grew up near Leicester, UK, and did my undergraduate studies at Cambridge University in Natural Sciences, specialising in Astrophysics in my final year. I then obtained my Masters degree from University College London (UCL) before working in gamma-ray astronomy at the Max-Planck-Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg, Germany for a year. I completed my PhD in Astrophysics at UCL's Mullard Space Science Laboratory. Since then, I have been working as an independent post-doctoral fellow - 3 years in Taiwan (National Tsing Hua University), now at Osaka University in Japan.
My main research revolves around the central theme of astrophysical and observational impacts of cosmic rays in galaxies. This covers topics ranging from bubbles around galaxies, to the formation of stars and the production of energetic backgrounds of particles and radiation originating in the distant Universe.
