Theoretical Cosmology


I am a Lecturer in Applied Mathematics at Newcastle University. In September 2020 my PhD student Alex Gough joined our Newcastle Cosmology research group

I am very excited to have been part of the 'Universe Unravelled' Series filmed at Cambridge that is now available on Discovery+, the streaming channel of Discovery Channel Uk.

Before coming to Newcastle, I was a Research Associate in the group of Paul Shellard at The Stephen Hawking Centre for Theoretical Cosmology in Cambridge and a Research Fellow at Fitzwilliam College (2017-2019). Earlier, I was a PostDoc at the Delta Institute for Theoretical Physics in the group of Enrico Pajer at Utrecht University (2015-2017). I finished my PhD in Theoretical Cosmology in 2015 at the  Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich, supervised by Stefan Hofmann.

Together with Ulrike Böhm, I am running the facebook page 'Physikerinnen' for female physicists. Every week, we highlight an excellent women in physics (from student to professor) as 'female physicist of the week'.
