As an astrophysicist with a passion for science communication, Josephine is a talented tutor with a knack for clear explanations. She specializes in Physics, Maths and Astrophysics.
Her own education began at King`s College London with a BSc in Mathematics. This was followed by a MSc by Research in Astronomy & Astrophysics at the University of Manchester. Finally, Josephine has recently completed her PhD in Astrophysics at the University of Oxford.
Josephine`s research is in the area of Galaxy Evolution. She observes large populations of galaxies using arrays of radio telescopes and tracks the rate at which they evolve over the history of the Universe. This research utilises skills in coding, Python, parallel computing, Bayesian methods and statistical analysis.
Alongside tutoring, Josephine continues to communicate science to a wider audience through podcasting on A Piece of String (www.stringpodcast, Spotify, iTunes+) and presenting videos on Astrophysics (www.youtube/JosieA). She has also featured on a BBC Ideas video on mathematics and is involved in an exciting new project that will be unveiled in early December 2019.
