In 2001 I completed an MSci degree in Theoretical Physics at the University of Durham. I stayed on at Durham in the Atomic and Molecular Physics group under the supervision of Professor Charles Adams and completed my PhD in 2004.  Following this I undertook post-doctoral research at the University of Melbourne, McMaster University and the University of Leeds.  In April 2011 I joined the School of Mathematics and Statistics, Newcastle University as a lecturer.

My research interests include:

- Vortices and solitons in quantum gases

- Quantum gases with long-range dipolar interactions

- Quantum turbulence
