More About Me

Hi, I'm Jeremy

I graduated from University College Dublin with a BSc. (Honours) in Physics with Astronomy and Space Science. In my final year I used the 1.2 meter telescope at Calar Alto Observatory to calculate the star formation rate within the inner ring of the galaxy NGC 4736.

Through summer internships at University College Dublin and Trinity College Dublin I made observations with the Irish station of the International LOFAR Telescope (I-LOFAR). This introduced me to the area of radio astronomy and helped me develop data analysis techniques for large data sets.

I am currently the Lindsay PhD Scholar, jointly based between the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies and Armagh Observatory and Planetarium. I am also registered as a postgraduate research student at Queen’s University Belfast.

My research focusses on detecting radio emission from low mass stars to better determine the emission mechanisms behind impusive releases of energy and the impact this may have on orbiting exoplanets.
