I graduated from the University of Nottingham with a Masters in Physics with Theoretical Physics in 2017. I knew I wanted to continue my academic career by doing a PhD but was unsure about what topic to pursue. After hearing about the DST doctoral training centre and researching the topic myself, I decided that the program was a unique opportunity I wanted to pursue.
Having completed the DST CDT Master course in 2018 I progressed onto the PhD program in the Warwick Diamond Research Group at Millburn House. I am supervised by Professor Mark Newton, Professor Mike Glazer and Professor Pam Thomas and funded by EPSRC and De Beers.
My project title is 'Quantitative Optical Measurements on Diamond' and has a threefold aim; absorption and scattering dependance on input polarisation, a novel technique for low absoption measurement and an improved quantitative birefringence microscope.

I am a member of the DST CDT Outreach committee which is responsible for organising and running outreach events in the Midlands.
