I am an ARC Future Fellow and a Lecturer at the University of Southern Queensland (UniSQ). I am searching for planets around a variety of different stars using NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS). I am interested in exploring the properties of planets and the stars that harbour them. By searching for planets around different types of stars, stars that are younger than the Sun, or hotter than the Sun, we can learn more about what factors shape planetary systems, and what makes the Solar system we reside in more special. I graduated from the Australian National University in 2015, and subsequently held positions as a NASA Hubble fellow and a CfA fellow at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. In 2021, I commenced a ARC DECRA Fellow position at UniSQ.
