I am a first year PhD student in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Metamaterials (XM2). I graduated from the University of Exeter in 2017 with an MPhys in Physics.

I am currently working with Dr Steven Hepplestone, Prof. G.P. Srivastava and Dr David Horsell on the nanoscale patterning of materials to improve their thermoelectric properties.

This is achieved using first principles calculations to discern the electronic and phononic properties of thermoelectric materials and investigate how changes to the structure at interface regions can modify these properties.
