Professional

I'm a master's student studying astrophysics, specifically space science, at the University of Liège in Belgium. I have spent a semester on exchange at Aarhus University in Denmark and previously in 2019 I obtained my BSc. in Physics with Astrophysics from the National University of Ireland, Galway.

My prior work includes a paid summer internship at the NUI Galway School of Physics, and a teaching assistant/lab demonstrator position on the CS211 course there at the School of Mathematics. I have completed a number of other research projects during my studies, and undertaken other voluntary work.

I am currently a member of the Executive Committee of the International Association of Physics Students; this year I am serving as Treasurer, previously I have been the Events Manager. Before this I was a member of the Student Committee of the Institute of Physics, and the Auditor of the NUI Galway Astronomy Society. Among other things.

I like thinking about rules and systems, which probably informs some of my interests above. I also like thinking about magic, as I am a wizard :^) I enjoy long walks, though not usually on the beach. Sand is irritating.

Je parle un peu de français, car j'ai vécu en Belgique. Si vous voulez me parle en français, vas-y!
