I work in the field of cosmology, with a particular interest in large-scale structure in the Universe. I started at the University of Sussex in 2013 and am currently a senionr Lecturer in Physics and Astronomy. Prior to that I studied for my PhD at the University of Edinburgh. I then undertook postdoctoral positions at the University of Nottingham, University of Pennsylania, University of Zurich and also the Max-Planck instutute for Astrophysics.

Whist at Sussex I have lectured on Cosmology and Mathematical Methods for Physicists 1.

Over the years I have written various publications on various topics in cosmology.
