Professional biography

I graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2015 with an MSci in Physics with Astronomy and started my PhD at the Open University in 2015. I am working in collaboration with XCAM to optimise an EM-CCD based X-ray camera for use on NASA’s OGRE sounding rocket, a project aiming to obtain the most accurate soft X-ray spectra of Capella to date.
