About

I am a PhD Candidate in astronomy and astrophysics at the Australian National University in Canberra. My main interests are microphysical astronomy, particularly the production of antimatter in the Milky Way. Find out more about me, my research and outreach activities.

Upcoming talks: Macquarie University, 7th September

Read: What your fruit bowl and the Galaxy have in common, Woroni


 

Research

Find out more about my work on positrons (anti-electrons) in the Milky Way galaxy. You can also learn more about my observational work on SN1991bg-like supernovae, thought to be the source of much of the antimatter in the Milky Way
