After my undergraduate BSc in Mathematics with Astronomy at the University of Southampton, I obtained my M.Phil and PhD also from Southampton in the Astronomy group (2010). I later spent a few years at Radboud University Nijmegen, Netherlands, as a postdoctoral fellow. In 2012 I moved to KU Leuven, Belgium, with a FWO Pegasus Marie Curie fellowship, followed by a Humboldt fellowship in 2015 held at the Max-Planck-Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Garching, Germany. In 2017 I was appointed lecturer at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, and in 2018 moved as an Assistant Professor at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, USA. In 2020 I joined the Centre for Extragalactic Astronomy at Durham University as an Assistant Professor.
