I am a PhD student working as a part of the Deep Extragalactic VIsible Legacy Survey (DEVILS) investigation the way galaxies have evolved over the last 8 billion years.
I am a double graduate of the University of Western Australia having completed both my Bachelor of Science and my Masters of Physics at UWA. My undergraduate studies were in physics (astrophysics) and chemistry (physical chemistry) which led me to complete a Masters of Physics with ICRAR-UWA. My research interests are in understanding galaxy evolution through large multiwavelength surveys such as GAMA and COSMOS. My master’s project, under the supervision of Dr Aaron Robotham, Prof. Simon Driver, and Dr Sabine Bellstedt, was to investigate the active galactic nuclei determination capabilities of spectral energy distribution (SED) fitting algorithms such as ProSpect. For more information about ProSpect and to have a play with SEDs go to the web version of ProSpect.
