I grew up in the East Midlands in the UK and pursued my BSc and MPhys in Physics at the University of Warwick. After a year of work in industry I moved to Durham University to study for my PhD at the Institute for Computational Cosmology (ICC). I completed this in August 2019 under the supervision of Prof. Adrian Jenkins and Prof. Carlos Frenk.
In October that year, I began postdoctoral research in Lyon, France working with Prof. Noam Libeskind on the HESTIA suite of Local Group analogue simulations. At the conclusion of this, I undertook a short-term position at the Astrophysics Research Institute at Liverpool John Moores University working with Prof. Rob Crain to study how the merger history of L* galaxies affects the disruption of their Globular Cluster populations.
