My research interests lie at the intersection between astrophysics, space weather, high-performance computing, machine learning and remote sensing. After completing my undergraduate degree at the University of Adelaide, I moved to the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research in Germany to study magnetic activity on the Sun. Thereafter I moved to the US and worked at Lockheed Martin Advanced Technology Center on a number of NASA missions, most notably the Solar Dynamics Observatory.
