Background

[su_divider text="" style="default" divider_color="#ffffff" size="3" margin="0"]

I have a Masters Degree in Astrophysics from the University of Edinburgh, where I studied for 6 years. My favorite areas of science are planetary formation and computer simulation, although I covered a range of projects and subjects during my time at university. Since graduating, I have been working on a small number number of science projects in my spare time, including Dark Matter studies (see Post-Masters Proposal) and simulators.

On this webpage, you can find the reports I made for all my major projects during my time at university, and my subsequent work. Don't worry if you're not a physicist, or even a scientist! I am told I have a very nice writing style that makes it very easy to follow, even when discussing complicated subjects. The title and abstract for each project is presented along with a button to download the full project report.

If you have any questions regarding these reports, or the science behind them, I am more than happy to answer. Please use the contact link at the bottom of this page!
