I am gay and I am a condensed-matter physicist. //
I’ve gone on a long journey from an undergraduate degree in nanotechnology and a PhD in physics way back in Australia to now being the Keeley-Rutherford Junior research fellow at Wadham College in Oxford University, via a visiting scientist position at the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin. I carry out a diverse program of experimental physics research using neutron and x-ray scattering to explore emergent electronic and magnetic phenomena in crystalline materials. In my spare time I enjoy boardgames, horror movies, and powerlifting.
