Welcome to my homepage. I hold a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Sheffield. My research is based on trying to answer one of the fundamental questions in astrophysics; where do most stars in our Galaxy form, and does where they form affect the planets that orbit them?

Please follow the links for more information on my research, publications, a brief biography of my time as an astronomer and a CV.
