I am a second year Astrophysics PhD student at the Astrophysics Research Institute in Liverpool. Alongside this, I am also currently working as a data scientist at Aspia Space as my industry placement for the LIV.INNO CDT (Centre for Doctoral Training). My research and work placement are principally focused on machine learning and data science, and their implementations in both astronomical research and the space science sector.

My research focuses on utilising machine learning and state-of-the-art cosmological hydrodynamical simulations to investigate the underlying relationships between galaxies and their surrounding dark matter haloes.
