I am a computational astrophysicist. My research interests focus on the formation and evolution of planets and small bodies, such as asteroids and comets through the use of numerical simulations. There is more information on my group's research page.


I am an STFC Advanced Fellow in the Astrophysics Group in the School of Physics at the University of Bristol. Please see my CV on my group webpage for more details.


I currently teach the undergraduate Planets module of Astronomy I.
