A Radio Astronomy Search for Axion Cold Dark Matter
Working with Peter Quinn, Lister Staveley-Smith and Ian McArthur my research focuses on the astrophysical search for axions. Our work is multi-disciplinary in nature, bringing together Quantum Field Theory, Astrophysics and Radio Astronomy to provide insight into the requirements needed to undertake a viable search using radio telescopes.
Prior to commencing my PhD I completed a Bachelors Degree in Mathematics and Physics at the University of Glasgow and was employed for 10 years in professional services and with large multi-national organisations. Having held a long standing interest in returning to research I gained the opportunity to join ICRAR in 2014 and returned with a view to marrying my love for theoretical physics with my experience and passion for working with people. Throughout my studies I have worked with Student Services providing workshops and advice on graduate employment and have sought to maintain my professional development. Within ICRAR I am a student member of the Diversity and Equity Committee, organised the 2015 student day and was responsible for organising seminar lunches between students and international visitors.
