I'm currently a PhD student at the University of Glasgow, funded by an STFC Research Studentship. Been doing this for the last 3 years or so, and I'm curreNTLY WRITING A THESIS OH SWEET JE$%£"!!. (help)
My work during this PhD has been focussed on solar astronomy, specifically solar prominences. I mostly use spectroscopic techniques to study ultraviolet/extreme-ultraviolet observations of these structures, however recently I've been using radiative transfer codes to model certain parameters of prominences.
I spent four months of my PhD in Paris working at the Observatoire de Paris in Meudon. During that time I worked on analysing IRIS observations of tornado-like prominences. The great thing about doing a PhD is getting to travel all over the place. It's pretty awesome.
I've also had a fair amount of experience in making observations using both satellites and ground-based telescopes.
I am on ResearchGate.
