I am queer and I am an astroparticle physicist. //

I am a British-American now working in Geneva for the IceCube experiment based in the South Pole looking for messenger particles from space. We aim to learn more about high-energy objects in space by looking at the direction of particle tracks in the Antarctic ice. I previously studied in London at Imperial College and the Université de Paris Sud, and will soon move again somewhere new for my next adventure. I am a member of both the University of Geneva LGBTQ+ society and LGBTQ+ CERN. Me and my friends enjoy a healthy amount of rainbows, glitter, and dancing whenever possible!
