I grew up in Sydney, New South Wales, and studied for my Honours and Masters at the University of Sydney. I studied abroad at the University of California, Berkeley, and I'm now at Balliol College, Oxford, studying for my DPhil in Astrophysics.
Outside of physics, I'm interested in Vikings, language, and economic history. At the moment, I'm especially taken by Robert Macfarlane's The Old Ways and exploring the walking routes of England. I'm vegetarian, keen on Python, Bayes, cycling, coffee, and Earl Grey.
I'm representing Balliol College in the 2016 series of University Challenge on BBC2.
