Research Group(s): 

Education: 

2008-2012 BSc (Adv) (Hons) UNSW, Honours Class I and University Medal in Physics

Research Interests: 

My research interests span several different disciplines of physics, but mainly focus on the investigation of physical models beyond the Standard Model with an emphasis on ultralight (sub-eV) bosonic dark matter, which can come in a variety of forms, including relic axion, pseudoscalar and scalar particles that were produced in the early Universe, as well as topological defects consisting of scalar and pseudoscalar fields that were produced in a phase transition during the early Universe.

I have produced 14 refereed publications in leading international physics journals in the areas of atomic, molecular, nuclear, elementary particle, solid state physics and astrophysics. I have produced 4 publications in Physical Review Letters. I have written 1 book chapter and 2 invited reviews. I have presented 3 talks (2 invited talks) at international conferences, and 2 colloquia. Some of my research has been given front-webpage highlight by the Physical Review (Editor's Suggestion), and covered in Physics Today, New Scientist, Phys.org and Lenta.ru

Honours, Awards and Memberships: 

29 academic undergraduate and postgraduate awards, prizes and scholarships within Faculty of Science, School of Physics and School of Chemistry at UNSW, including highest WAM in Advanced Science cohort in 2008-2010, 2012.
