Shannon Horrigan


I am currently a first year PhD student as part of the University of Warwick's MASDOC Doctoral Training Programme. My research is in the area of Statistical Mechanics. I am currently working with Dr. Stefan Adams on a class of continuum models in two dimensions known as Delaunay Potts models. We are investigating whether such models exhibit a phase transition. My second supervisor is Dr. Roger Tribe.
