I am a first year PhD student of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Metamaterials (XM2) in Exeter. The research project is titled "Plasmon Gain in 2D materials" and motivated in the PhD-project section. 

Originally, I am from Germany and studied Physics in Jena (B.Sc. and M.Sc.). In my bachelor thesis, I worked on laser wakefield acceleration of electrons by focussing a petawatt laser pulse onto a gas cell. Before starting my master, I spend five months as an occupational trainee at the University of Sydney. I used using liquid crystal on silicon devices for mode division multiplexing in multi-mode fibres. Back in Jena, I focussed my master physics studies on the fields of optics and photonics. Within my master thesis project, I investigated active spontaneous emission modulation by coupling emitters to all-dielectric-metasurfaces embedded in a liquid crystal cell.
