I'm a XM2 CDT physics postgraduate researcher, currently researching underwater acoustic metamaterials at the University of Exeter.

As an undergraduate I studied my Masters of Physics with particle physics and cosmology (MPhys) at Lancaster University. For my masters project I used computational modelling (MEEP) to study a "light shining through a wall" experiment, looking for Weakly Interacting Slim Particles (WISPs), based on an experiment at the Cockcroft Institute in Daresbury, run by the CASCADE group.

My research focuses on the acoustic transmission and reflection properties of materials and changing these properties using surface and bulk structuring. I presented my work on the properties of structured pressure-release materials at CIMTEC materials conference in June 2016:

My current research interests include: Acoustics, material fabrication, material characterization, signal analysis, modal matching, data analysis, data visualisation, Fourier acoustics and metamaterials.
