Biography

I am a STFC-funded Postdoctoral Researcher at the Astrophysics Research Institute of Liverpool John Moores University. My research focuses on detecting variations in the star-formation process within our galaxy, the Milky Way. Using Galactic-scale surveys, namely the Herschel infrared Galactic Plane Survey (Hi-GAL) and the JCMT Plane Survey (JPS) we detect the sites of star formation here in the Milky Way. By studying these star-forming regions, and their environments, we can determine what is regulating the star-formation process on the scales of individual molecular clouds up to the scales of galaxies. Selecting these young stars allows us to better understand the building blocks of galaxies like the Milky Way that we see today, as well as helping to uncover the nature of the galaxies that were responsible for re-ionising the Universe.
