About Me

I completed my BSc in Biochemistry at the University of Essex in 2016.

For my undergraduate final year project, I worked on developing the Tyrosyl Radical EPR Spectra Simulation Algorithm. I found three formulas that calculate the Euler angles for the hyperfine interactions for the methylene protons in tyrosyl free radicals as functions of the tyrosyl ring rotation angle.

I am currently involved in a Warwick/ISIS Ph.D. project about the using negative muons in the elemental analysis of cultural heritage materials to bio-materials under the joint supervision of Prof. Don Paul (Warwick) and Dr. Aidy Hilier (ISIS-RAL).
