​​​​​​Introduction and profile

I am an instrument scientist on the OFFSPEC reflectometer.

I obtained my MPhys in Physics from the University of Warwick in 2007 and completed my PhD in the thin film magnetism group (TFM) at Cambridge University in 2011 entitled “Electrodeposition, magnetism and growth studies of cobalt, nickel and copper”. I was awarded an EPSRC doctoral prize position to investigate the levelling properties of various additives in copper electrodeposition before moving to ISIS and taking a postdoctoral position investigating spin triplet superconductiviy in ferromagnet/superconductor thin film heterostructures. I currently have research interests in lithium ion batteries, solar cell materials and neutronics for instrument development. I have recently become interested in machine learning and its applications in a scientific context.
