Currently: Researcher in Physics
Expertise: Physics & Astronomy
Highest qualification: Doctorate (PhD, DPhil)
I am passionate about engaging with the public, and have taken part in events such as Soapbox Science, Pint of Science and Cafe Scientifique. As a member of the Optics and Photonics Society at the University, I have also organised outreach events at local schools and museums. At these events I have presented my research at a level suitable for children and adults of all ages and all backgrounds. During my PhD and work as a postdoctoral researcher I have given many technical talks at national and international conferences, and have been awarded best presentation on three occasions. I am happy to travel to meet with other researchers and present my work to scientific audiences and members of the public. I can also give talks on the general themes of metamaterials, photonics, optics, plasmonics, electromagnetics, terahertz technology and chirality.
