I am bi and I am a cosmologist. //

I am a bi astrophysicist originally from South Africa, now living and working in Canada. I use data and observations taken from remote places like the deserts of Northern Chile together with statistical tools and methods to understand what the Universe is made of, and how it changes and evolves with time. I love that my job is to be curious, and to work with other scientists to try to understand the cosmos—it often feels as great as getting a huge puzzle for your birthday. I love talking about my science and getting people excited about topics like the death of the Universe. When I’m not doing science I love reading, doing improv comedy, learning new languages, and making delicious cocktails. I love being creative and being challenged!
