I am currently in the third year of my Ph.D. in the Warwick Electrochemistry and Interfaces Group under the supervision of Professor Julie Macpherson. My research focuses on the further development of electrochemical Boron Doped Diamond Sensors for Water Quality Monitoring. This includes using finite element modeling to understand similar systems and fundamental processes to hopefully guide future work.


At the end of my second year, I had the opportunity to do a URSS summer research project with Professor Julie Macpherson. In the project, I investigated the voltammetric response of different single crystal Boron-Doped Diamond samples. I went on to graduate with a BSc in Chemistry from the University of Warwick in 2018 and MSc in Diamond Science and Technology in 2019 through the Diamond Science and Technology CDT. As part of my MSc course, I worked in the group of Professor Henry S. White at the University of Utah with Dr. Martin A. Edwards learning how to model conical nanopores and other electrochemical systems using finite element modeling and developing skills for my PhD.
