PhD Title: Development of Boron Doped Diamond Sensors for Water Quality Monitoring
PhD Supervisor: Prof Julie Macpherson
Institution: University of Warwick

About Me

During the summer at the end of my second year studying Chemistry at the University of Warwick, I had the opportunity to do a URSS summer research project with Professor Julie Macpherson. In the project, I investigated the response of different single crystal Boron-Doped Diamond samples to several redox couples. I went to graduate with a BSc in Chemistry from the University of Warwick in 2018 and an MSc in Diamond Science and Technology in 2019 through the DST CDT. As part of my MSc course, I worked in the White Group at the University of Utah learning how to model electrochemical systems using Finite Element Modelling and developing skills for my PhD.

Research Interests

My research focusses on the further develop Boron Doped Diamond Sensors for Water Quality Monitoring. This includes using Finite Element Modelling to model and understand similar systems to hopefully guide future work.
