I graduated in July 2016 with an MPhys (Hons) degree in Physics with Astrophysics from the University of Exeter, during which I researched star formation and gas kinematics in the spiral arms of the Milky Way. After this, I returned to Exeter and worked as a GBP on the Education Catalyst Project, investigating modules offered by the University (specifically the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences) to assess alignment with the University's Education Strategy.

I am now studying for a PhD with the XM2 Metamaterials CDT under the supervision of Prof. Geoff Nash and Dr Peter Petrov. My research so far has involved finite-element modelling acoustic streaming with a surface acoustic wave (SAW) device. My future plans are to fabricate and characterise SAW phononic crystal devices with a view to investigate how the surrounding environment affects device responses, with a focus on biological sensing applications.
