I am a part-time PhD Student with the Accretion Physics and Slow Transients group at the Curtin Institute of Radio Astronomy. My Supervisors are Prof. James Miller-Jones, Prof. Arash Bahramian and Dr. Steve Prabu. My PhD project is currently titled “Relativistic Jets from Feeding Black Holes in our Galaxy”.

Prior to this I completed a Master of Physics (Astronomy and Astrophysics) at the University of Western Australia, graduating at the end of 2021. Supervised by Prof. Linqing Wen and Dr. Fiona Panther of the UWA School of Physics, my research was in Gravitational Waves (GWs). My dissertation, titled “Investigating Past and Future Gravitational Wave Parameter Estimation using the Fisher Information Matrix”, looked at the impact of various configurations the global GW detector network on GW event localisation. During this time I was a member of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Gravitational-Wave Discovery (OzGrav).

Whilst completing my PhD part-time, I am also working at Deloitte in the Perth CBD. I am part of the Global Investment and Innovation Incentives (Gi³) team that includes STEM professionals from many diverse backgrounds and disciplines. I work to assist companies in accessing funding for innovative projects, through either the Federal Government’s Research & Development (R&D) Tax Incentive or Government Grants.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my girls who include my fiancée Aisha, our two dogs Bowie and Nyx and our cat Apollo. I also enjoy backyard astronomy, playing guitar, photography and an array of various music and film genres.
