I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the School of Mathematics and Physics at The University of Queensland. From July 2017 until May 2020, I was employed as a Postdoctoral Fellow within the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the Australian National University. In 2017 I was named the 2017 winner of the IAU and Gruber Foundation Fellowship after receiving my PhD from the University of Cape Town with THREE A's on my PhD examiners reports. This additional grant of 50,000 USD is awarded annually to an extremely promising, young astrophysicist to promote the science of cosmology.
My main research interests are in observational cosmology, Large Scale Structure, and galaxy formation and evolution. I am currently working on creating the largest dynamic map of the local universe, including both positions and velocities. These maps are crucial to study precision cosmology, as our local universe affects all the light we see from distant galaxies. I am currently using The Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI) survey, The WALLABY Survey, and The Taipan galaxy survey to establish this map.
