I am a PhD candidate at the Research School of Astronomy & Astrophysics, Australian National University. I research physical processes in star formation, using highly detailed computational simulations to study the environment around new-born stars.

I completed my BSc Hons. at Monash University in 2018, where I studied planet formation.

I am passionate about promoting pathways for women in STEM, as well as general outreach and teaching. I am an ACT Ambassador for the IncludeHer Movement, which aims to lobby state governments to increase the representation of the work of female scientists in the high school curricula.
