I started out life on the other side of the world in the American Pacific Northwest, but a chance encounter with a postgraduate recruitment poster from the School of Mathematical Sciences at QMUL led me eight time zones east and now I'm a research student in the Astronomy Unit.
My degrees are in mathematics but I'm also interested in astronomy and computer science.
Blue moons, frowly cats, first cousins twice removed, exiled Americans and much more can be found at Obliquity.

The image of the Sun at the left of the page was recorded by SOHO/EIT
on 27 February 2002. The large magnetic loop is seen in the
Fe IX/X 171Å line. The temperature of this material is about
1 million K in the lower corona. The large loop on the right
arches over an active region. The extreme ultraviolet image enables us
to see tight, loop-like magnetic fields that extend above the Sun's
surface around which charged particles are spinning.
