I finished my undergraduate degree in Physics and Astrophysics in Trinity in 2017 and joined the group later that year. Also during 2017 I was part of the construction team for the I-LOFAR telescope in Birr, coming from Mullingar it was nice to be the Midlands representative on this project! In my spare time I watch more TV than is good for me and play video games when I get the chance.


My research involves using the Low Frequency Array (LOFAR) to study Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) which are essentially chunks of the Sun that get ejected into space and can have many effects here on Earth.
