this is me

I am a postgraduate research student at the University of Hertfordshire. My research currently focuses on the creation of infrared proper motion catalogues using recent large area surveys (such as UKIDSS), and exploiting them for their scientific content. In particular I am investigating the kinematics of local substellar objects and planet hosts. I often demonstrate at Bayfordbury Observatory group visits and undergraduate practicals.
