Hi, I’m Courtney! Thanks for visiting my website.

By day, I work full-time in communications, aiming to share technical and regulatory work through accessible and engaging content. (Disclaimer: any views I express are mine alone, and do not necessarily represent those of my employer.)

By night, I am sadly not a crime-fighting superhero, but instead an MSc student studying Space Science and Technology with the Open University – hence the name “astrocourt”. I am currently taking a break from these studies and will start work on my thesis in November 2023.

I live with my partner of nine years in London. In my free time I like to read, write, craft, cook, bake, go to the gym, volunteer at the Science Museum, run, sing, perform improv comedy, listen to podcasts, do crosswords, drink tea and somehow still spend way too much time online.

P.S. Like my background?

It’s an image of the Crab Nebula I took with the OU’s PIRATE telescope during my undergraduate degree. Probably one of the coolest things I’ve done during my education, even if I didn’t get to go to Tenerife to operate it in person.
