[Like the rest of this site this section is incomplete and not very CV-ish but it does give you a general overview - This is now quite old. a full site rehaul is on the agenda]
I have just finished my MSci at UCL studying Astrophysics within Natural Sciences. My minor stream was Molecular and Cell Biology which I studied alongside Astrophysics till year 3.
>>> I am now enrolled for a PhD at UCL continuing the work i started on my master project<<<
My Masters Project was with Dr Giovana Tinetti and is focused on the methods of detecting molecules (like water and methane) in the atmosphere of extrasolar planets using current day instruments. I developed the python program EAMEPy as part of this project which you can read more about here. I won the Brian Duff Memorial Prize for the Best 4th Year project in the department for this project and received a PhD offer at UCL to continue it.
As part of these projects i have;
- Learned to effectively manage and create my own projects
- Run and maintain my own VPS webserver (running linux with WHM and cpanel)
- Work with others and in teams on MacGazette and for my Masters project.
- Analyse and modernise a small business by improving inefficient processes, implementing cost saving measures and designing a database system to replace an old paper storage method through my summer work for Select Financial Solutions North East.
