I am an Obstetrics & Gynaecology trainee, having completed my foundation training in the North West of England. I studied Medicine at Cardiff and Swansea Universities. Prior to this I studied at several Universities in the North of England gaining undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in Astronomy and Astrophysics.
I am married with 1 child and another on the way.
PhD Title: A Spectroscopic Study of the Rapidly Oscillating Peculiar A Star HD 134214
During my PhD I studied the photometric and spectroscopic properties of roAp stars, in particular HD 134214. I performed a detailed abundance analysis of this star and also analysed the radial velocity variations, in order to try and gain a better understanding of the structure of the atmosphere of HD 134214 and the pulsations therein.
My special areas of interest are Astronomy and Medicine and I have a particular interest in trying to keep articles in these subjects of high quality.
I am also a great follower and player of rugby, snooker and darts. In particular I follow Sale Sharks in Rugby Union and Wakefield Trinity Wildcats in Rugby League. I have also attended the World Snooker Championships on many occasions. I also try (and often fail) to spend time growing fruit and vegetables in my garden.
