Amelia is a member of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics Relativity and Gravitation research group.  Her current research interests are axion and gravitational wave (GW) signatures from cosmic strings, and GW signatures from dark matter around black holes. She is a developer of the adaptive mesh numerical relativity code, GRChombo (
