I am currently a Research Fellow working on an exciting new venture between Warwick University and Element Six led by Prof. Julie Macpherson and Dr. Mark Newton (EPR and Diamond Research Group, Physics). The overall goal of the project is to design and demonstrate prototype devices using boron doped diamond (BDD) and establish the scientific knowledge that underpins the electrochemical application. My scientific interests lie on transferring my knowledge and expertise of electrochemical sensing to develop commercially viable devices for the bioanalytical and environmental industry including application of new electrode materials like BDD to highly challenging environments.
Previously I've taken on a three year RA position at Imperial College London sponsored by venture capital to develop novel electrochemical techniques for medical applications followed by a year long position based at Warwick University and sponsored by the BP Exploration Research Grant for the development of new methods for polymer detection.
