RESEARCH FOCUS

I am a PhD student at ICRAR-UWA, supervised by Claudia Lagos and Chris Power. I work as part of the SU3 group (Computational Modelling and Theory), using cosmological hydrodynamical simulations to better understand the baryon cycle of galaxies. Previously, I graduated with First Class Honours from UWA in 2018 with a Bachelor of Philosophy degree.

INTERESTS OUTSIDE ACADEMIA

I am an avid sports-woman, and play a sport called floorball (essentially indoor hockey), representing the state and Australia on several occasions.
