I have a PhD in Astrophysics from the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Germany. I then left Astrophysics for a few years and explored how we can optimally design homes for energy efficiency and comfort at UCL before returning to Astrophysics as a PDRA at the University of Oxford. I am currently a UKRI Future Leaders Fellow in the Astrophysics research group at Surrey, working on the GLEAM project.

My research interests lie in unveiling the evolutionary histories and dark matter contents of nearby galaxies through forensic studies of the chemical and dynamical properties of the stars within them. I use an interdisciplinary approach, combining equilibrium dynamical models that connect stellar motions to dark matter, machine learning tools that interpret big datasets quickly, and methods based on evolutionary biology to decipher high-dimensional datasets.
