My research project
The effect of the deforming dark matter halos on stellar streams
The Milky Way and the Large Magellanic Cloud are merging. As a result, their dark matter halos are deforming. I am investigating whether this has an effect on visible objects in the halo, such as stellar streams. Currently, I study this effect on the Orphan stream.
To get involved with the broader PGR community at the University, I joined the Doctoral College Conference organising committee. We planned and executed an interdisciplinary conference for PGRSs and ECRs, New Horizons 2020, with over 300 attendees. Due to the pandemic we ran it only. It was a great success and highly commended.
Based on expertise and knowledge from organising the DC conference, I was invited to join the Research Culture Week organising committee. This event in November 2020 consistent of 2 talks per day for a week, with a different focus on a research culture topic each day.
