I am a Solar Physicist at the National Solar Observatory (NSO) in Boulder, Colorado. My research primarily explores highly explosive events on the Sun known as Solar Flares. I use telescopes on the ground and in space to investigate these processes, and the rapid release of energy within them. I am also a recent PhD graduate at the UCL Mullard Space Science Laboratory, and Newkirk Fellow at the NCAR High Altitude Observatory, also in Boulder, Colorado.
I am also very active in science communication, and work routinely with museums and schools to promote science to future generations of scientists. My first book, 'The Sun: beginner's guide to our local star', is set for publication in May 2023.
