I am a PhD student in the School of Physics & Astronomy at Monash University, currently visiting the Flatiron Institute Center for Computational Astrophysics (CCA) as a Research Analyst. My main research interests are in binary star evolution and the formation of gravitational wave sources.

I am a proud member of the COMPAS team, which is a collaborative effort to study isolated binary evolution through rapid population synthesis of massive binary stars. I am also a member of OzGrav and an associate member of the LISA Consortium.
