• #### Data-driven Approaches to Stellar Variability Detection and Characterisation ﻿

I present the work completed during my time as a PhD student within the Exoplanet Group of the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, UK, as a part of the Centre for Doctoral Training in Data-Intensive Sciences. ...
• #### Numerical modelling of plasmas formed and magnetically controlled in hypersonic flows ﻿

In high enthalpy hypersonic flows, the pressures and temperatures in the shock layer can become so extreme that dissociation and ionisation reactions produce a weakly ionised plasma. Owing to its elevated electrical ...
• #### Tests of lepton universality in $B^{0} \to K_{S}^{0} l^{+} l^{-}$ and $B^{+} \to K^{*+} l^{+} l^{-}$ decays at the LHCb experiment ﻿

The decays $B^{0} \to K_{S}^{0} l^{+} l^{-}$ and $B^{+} \to K^{*+} l^{+} l^{-}$ - where $l^{+} l^{-}$ represents an electron-positron or muon-antimuon pair - are examples of $b \to s l^{+} l^{-}$ processes. Numerous analyses ...
• #### The role of mechanotransduction in signalling and pluripotent stem cell fate ﻿

Early embryonic development is a dynamic process in which cells are exposed to soluble and mechanical cues in the microenvironment in a spatially and temporally organised manner. Although increasing evidence suggests that ...
