I studied physics at the Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra, graduating in July 2011. My honours project was with the ANU Nuclear Reaction Dynamics Group, on the production of light radioactive isotope beams. I joined the Treutlein Group as a PhD student in October 2011, where I am currently developing methods for imaging microwave fields using Rubidium atoms. In my spare time, I am a keen cellist, basketballer and cyclist.
