Hey there! I’m Richard, a first year graduate student at the University of Oxford supervised by Julien Devriendt, Adrianne Slyz and Harry Desmond. I am interested in galaxy formation and dynamics, astrophysical tests of gravity, gravitational wave propagation and lensing in the strong-field limit, gravitational-wave astronomy, and Bayesian inference. I also like to go out for long runs whenever I can!


I received my undergraduate education in Physics and Astrophysics at the University of Glasgow in 2020. Along the way, I spent the 2nd year on exchange at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. I then pursued a two-year master’s degree in Physics at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University, which I completed in 2022.
