I'm a postgraduate researcher working within the XM2 Centre of Doctoral training at the University of Exeter. (Link to other XM2 postgraduates)

My current research is on applying the study of quantum thermodynamics to the area of magnetic data storage in order to improve our understanding concerning the miniaturisation of those technologies. My current task is to determine the reasons behind the mismatch between numerical simulations for the equilibrium magnetisation of ferromagnets and experimental data. My PhD supervisors are Prof. Janet Anders, Dr. Simon Horsley and Prof. Rob Hicken. I am a member of the quantum non-equilibrium group at Exeter (, and the magnetic materials research group (

I previously graduated with an MPhys from the University of Liverpool in 2017 (Article). My masters project involved the application of a quantum mechanical potential model to determine the charge transfer within the III-V semiconductor indium antimonide using x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy.

During my PhD I have taken part in the following events:
