I graduated from the University of Warwick with a MPhys degree in 2015. Since then I have been studying for my PhD on the "Microscopy and Spectroscopy of Van der Waal heterostructures", under the supervison of Dr Neil Wilson.
My current research is focused on synchrotron based nano-angle resolved photoelectron spectroscopy (nanoARPES) of various 2 dimensional (2D) materials, predominantly transition metal dichalcogenides (TMD) monolayers and heterostructures. In particular I study the layer dependent electronic structure of MX2 semiconductors (where M=Mo, or W and X=Se, S, or Te) and their alloys. As an extension of this work, I have also been looking at electrostatically gated TMD devices.
I also use SPM to compliment and enhance these ARPES measurements, most specifically atomic force microscopy (AFM) but also scanning kelvin probe microscopy (SKPM) among others techniques.
