I am a first year Post-Graduate Researcher with the CDT group specialised in metamaterial research and am currently working on a project to find the domain structure and microwave characteristics of particulate magnetic composites, with the aim of using 'onion skin' microparticles to better understand the way in which magnetic domains are formed. The full details of this project may be found here.

I graduated from The University of Exeter with a Masters in Physics in 2014 with research on acoustic metamaterials; developing a method for quickly and effectively characterising acoustic metasurfaces by plotting the dispersion relation from phase data recorded at different positions along said surfaces. This gave a fast way of looking at the manner in which multiple different frequencies of sound travel across different surfaces and also led to the development of a pulse modification technique that allowed cheaper equipment to be used for characterisation with ungainly resonances being better accounted for.

This research coincides with my current research as I aim to be honing the characterisation process of these microparticle composites as well as looking at how the structure and composition of said microparticles may change the properties of the composites they combine to form.
