I'm an astronomy researcher specialising in wide orbit planets and mining astronomical surveys. My main research interests are exoplanets brown dwarfs and the initial stellar & substellar mass function. In my previous postdoctoral positions I was a CAR Research Fellow at the University of Hertfordshire. Before that I worked on Pan-STARRS1 data in a previous spell at MPIA and also at Hawai`i, and at Radboud University Nijmegen. I completed my PhD at the University of Edinburgh.
