In July 2016 I graduated from the University of Warwick with a 1st MChem (Hons) degree in Chemistry. Over the course of my undergraduate studies I developed a love for electrochemistry and so undertook a placement working for Professor Julie Macpherson involving the development and testing of boron doped diamond sensors. This sparked my interest in diamond science and technology, and led me to apply for the CDT to gain expertise in this exciting field. After completing the MSc year my PhD research project will focus on the fabrication and optimisation of boron doped diamond micro- and nano-particles for electrochemical applications.
PhD Title: Boron Doped Diamond Micro- and Nano-Particles for Electrochemical Applications
