Research Staff


I’m an Instrumentation Scientist and Astronomer at the South African Astronomical Observatory (SAAO), where my research focuses on Solar System Science, specifically main-belt and near-Earth asteroids (NEAs).

My research speciality involves automated rapid-follow-up characterisation of newly discovered and potentially hazardous NEAs. I am also involved in astronomical instrumentation development and commissioning for various telescopes and instruments operated by the SAAO in Sutherland.

Research Interests:
Instrumentation development and testing, solar system science (main-belt and near-Earth asteroids)
