I have 1st class (masters) degree in astrophysics and am currently studying for a PhD in space physics, focusing on the structure and dynamics of the Jovian and Saturnian magnetospheres. My research utilizes magnetometer and plasma/particle data from the Cassini, Galileo, Ulysses, Voyager and Pioneer space probes and I am a full member of the Cassini Magnetometer science team.

I am a passionate supporter of public science education and have more than a passing interest in the philosophy of science and astronomy. In addition to part time work at a local astronomical observatory, I also give lectures to school children and amateur astronomy groups around the country.
