Research
I'm a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of St Andrews’ School of Physics and Astronomy.  I study star and planet formation on a variety of scales using numerical simulations, and I work on problems related to astrobiology and the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI).  If you’re just here to find a paper of mine or check my CV, you can use the quick buttons above.  If you want to know more, use the links below, where you can learn about me and my research, read my blogs, and see where I’ve been over the years, giving lectures, seminars and public talks.
