About me

I grew up on a farm in the north of Scotland and in 2008 I went to the University of St Andrews in the slightly-less-far-north of Scotland. Although I entered the School of Physics with the intention to be a theorist, I quickly found that the lab was my true home (I make my home a lab as well - ask me how many thermometers I have in my house). My CV tells the rest of the story.

I'll move to Illinois in autumn 2024 to start my group at Northwestern. Looking forward to experiencing weather again.

Outside of the lab (or home) I enjoy walking, running, kayaking and sleeping outdoors. I'm a devoted mother to a black cat and an amateur acrobat.
