Learn more about me
I was born and raised in San Francisco with a passion for arts and science. I'm a fan of good coffee, real ale, and talking to people about science.
I'm currently part of BBC Research and Development where I work alongside a wonderful team of people developing the next generation of technology for the UK's national broadcaster.
In my spare time I help to organize the Pint of Science festival in the UK which aims to engage people with cutting-edge science by bringing professional scientists to local pubs and event spaces to talk about their research in a relaxed environment.

IET Radar Conference (2017) - Presenting my conference paper to the international radar community. Image from IET.tv.
Pint of Science (2016) - Demonstrating the bizarre quantum properties of light to the crowd.
In 2015, I graduated with a First-Class Physics degree from the University of Birmingham. My final year projects covered quantum cryptography, remote planetary sensing, and automated semiconductor analysis.
I finished my PhD in Biologically-Inspired Radar in 2020 and you can watch me explain my research in the video below.
