Welcome to my Homepage!

My name is Cormac and I am currently a 6th year student in Coláiste an Spioraid Naoimh, Cork City. I search for massive stars in the Small Magellanic Cloud using photometric catalogues and spectral energy distributions. My mentor is Dr Jorick Vink. I competed in the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition earlier this year and from there was selected to represent Ireland at the 2017 Intel ISEF competition in May.
