Background

I did my Ph.D. at UC Santa Cruz under the guidance of Professor Gary Glatzmaier.  During my Ph.D. I studied convective overshoot and internal gravity wave generation (IGW) in the Sun. After graduating I had an NSF Astronomy & Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellowship, which I took to NCAR in Boulder.  While in Boulder, I worked with Keith MacGregor on the interaction of IGW with magnetic fields.  After two years I became an Assistant Professor at the University of Arizona, Lunar and Planetary Lab.  While at University of Arizona I changed my research to focus on more massive stars and giant exoplanets (hot Jupiters).  In 2014 I moved to the Department of Mathematics, Statistics and Physics at Newcastle University, where I am currently Professor of Computational Astrophysics.  I am also a Senior Scientist at the Planetary Science Institute (PSI, Tucson AZ).
