I am a professor in the Department of Physics at the University of Warwick. My main research interests are the evolution of compact binaries, in particular accreting and detached white dwarf binaries, observational population studies of white dwarf binaries, the evolution of planetary systems beyond the main sequence, stellar atmospheres, ultraviolet astronomy, and large-scale astronomical surveys. From 2013 to 2018, I am also an ERC Advanced Grant Fellow.
