Overview

I am Research Associate of the Gravity Exploration Institute and a member of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration and of the Quantum-enhanced Interferometry for New Physics Consortium

My academic experience so far spans over several fields in physics. From working at an observatory during my PhD doing spectral analysis on stars, to engaging in a ultra-cold atoms lab investigating few body dynamics of 85RB atoms. As part of the LIGO collaboration, I designing, setting up and commissioning new seismic cotrols to improve the detectors sustainability during earthquakes. 

At Cardiff, my research is focused on the construction of two co-located power-recycled Michelson interferometers for the search of signatures of space-time quantization. The twin tabletop co-located interferometers will also be sensitive to scalar field dark matter and high-frequency gravitational waves.
