I received my MPhys degree from the University of Exeter in 2014 studying metamaterial arrays acting as a high frequency cut off filters.

I worked at Southampton University in engineering for two summer placements in 2012 & 2013. These projects were on the manufacturing of synthetic thin veins using plastics and the optimisation of a water quality analysis device using acoustofluidics.

I was accepted onto the Centre of Doctoral Training at Exeter University in 2014, and am currently investigating semiconducitng two dimensional materials for use in optoelectronics field effect transistors in the visible regime. The aim is to utilise 2D materials in devices which outperform todays silicon based optoelectronic devices by using multiple 2D materials to enhance device properties.
