I am an astronomer using radio telescopes to answer fundamental questions on how super-massive black holes co-evolve with the galaxies in which they reside. My specialty is high-resolution imaging at low frequencies, using a Square Kilometre Array pathfinder telescope, the Low Frequency Array. I am currently a Hintze Fellow and the Millard and Lee Alexander Postdoctoral Fellow at Christ Church, University of Oxford. Outside of work, I am an avid reader, I love to sew, and I row for Christ Church!My Research

I am committed to helping promote gender equality in Physics. As an undergraduate at the University of Michigan, I was one of the three co-founders for the Society of Women in Physics (SWiP). Currently I am the President of the Oxford Women in Physics Society, which was founded by Jena Meinecke several years ago. The society aims to provide a welcoming support network for women in Physics at Oxford, and help facilitate their career development.
