PhD Title: What's that made of? Modelling muonic X-ray radiation for quantitative elemental analysis

PhD Supervisor: Albert Bartok-Partay


For undergraduate, I completed an integrated masters degree in Theoretical Physics at the University of York, graduating with a First Class Honours (with distinction). I was awarded the O. S. Heavens Prize for highest overall degree mark in the MPhys program.

My final year project was focused on acceleration of density functional theory calculations using graphics processing units (GPUs). In particular, this involved offloading the density of states calculations, as well as general GPU development within CASTEP.


My PhD project involves working with MuDirac, an open-source code designed for simulating muonic x-ray spectroscopy simulations.
