I am interested in characterising exoplanetary systems, and my current research is primarily reconstructing the unobserved extreme ultraviolet emission of cool dwarfs using observed X-ray and far ultraviolet emission. I generate empirically informed low-resolution extreme ultraviolet spectra to use an inputs for exoplanet atmosphere models and to study the relationships between exoplanetary properties and their high-energy irradiation. I also work on stellar activity more generally, and in the past, I have worked on N-body simulations of the tidal disruption of planetary material orbiting WD 1145+017.
