Dr Francesca Day
Fran studied Natural Sciences at St. Catharine's College, Cambridge and completed a DPhil in theoretical physics at Magdalen College, Oxford. She is interested in particle phenomenology and in using astrophysical observations to search for new fundamental physics. Her DPhil research focused on analysing X-ray telescope data to search for astrophysical signatures of axions, ultra-light particles predicted by string theory models. Outside of research, Fran is a science comedian.
