    Current    PhD Researcher at Queen’s University Belfast
    Sep 2016    Astrophysics research with specialisation in Solar Physics | Advisor: Dr. David Jess
    Provided analysis of waves in the solar atmosphere, with focus on non-linear waves and their ability to perturb atmospheric parameters. As evidence points towards their importance in solving the solar heating problem. Use of image analysis on large 4D/5D data sets (exceeding TB size), including correction of atmospheric seeing, co-alignment procedures and running-mean subtraction. Leader at Queen’s in use of parallelised inversion codes, used to extract physical information from images. Significant observing experience (3, 3 week observing runs) at the Dunn Solar Telescope, using state of the art observational facilities to acquire data for use in multiple novel scientific publications.

    Interests and Activities
    Programming: •       Constantly looking to expand my knowledge of python, by undertaking courses and challenges on Kaggle, EdX, Coursera and LinkedIn. Specifically trying to learn how to implement python in data analysis and hope to progress onto machine learning.
                    •    Attended a Good Programming Practices Seminar at QUB. As part of this seminar we were taught about version control, unit testing, proper variable naming and implementation
                         of functions with a code.
                    •    Attended an ARCHER Data Carpentry workshop, which provided an introduction to GitHub and SQL.

            Sport: •     Rugby enthusiast, who has been playing the game for more than fifteen years. This experience has highly developed my ability to work in a team and communicate in an articulate manner.
                    •    Competitive swimmer and member of QUB swimming club. Competed at numerous
                         Irish Schools and Irish Universities championships. Achieved through years of hard work, determination and commitment.
                    •    Recently took up indoor bouldering as an outlet during the week. It has also given me the
                         opportunity to learn a completely new skill that is challenging and requires a great deal of thought.

           Other: •      Member of the PhD Social Events committee within the department of Mathematics &
                         Physics. Helped to organise boat trips, PhD dinners and coffee mornings. This gave me the chance to work with people I don’t normally interact with on a day to day basis, and helped
                         improve my communication and teamwork skills.
                    •    In my spare time I enjoy playing video games, reading fantasy and sci-fi novels, and travelling to different countries and experiencing the local food.
