I am the Education & Public Engagement manager at I-LOFAR, the radio telescope situated in Birr, Co Offaly. After studying physics I began working in Science Communication which allows me to share the stories of science with everyone who will listen!

Eternal student, space-enthusiast & “solar physicist”. My PhD involves studying solar explosions using the world’s largest telescope, LOFAR. Years of study have taught me a lot, including sometimes the best science chats are had outside the office with a pint in hand!
