I am a PhD Student in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Leeds investigating exoplanet and planetary atmospheres through ‘high-top’ 3D chemistry-climate simulations (fully coupled). I recieved my MPhys in Physics from the University of Manchester in 2019.

I was a member of the 2020-2022 Priestley Climate Scholars cohort (

Research interests

  • Terrestrial planet habitability
  • Proterozoic and Phanerozoic Earth
  • Biosignatures and their detectability
  • Chemical detectability through atmospheric observations (transmission/emission spectra)
  • Chemistry and photochemstry and their coupling to climate
  • Terrestrial planetary evolution and terrestrial atmospheric evolution
  • Terrestrial exoplanet dynamics
