Research summary

I'm an EPSRC postdoctoral research fellow in the Physics Theory Group and a visiting scientist at Ecole normale supérieure in Paris. My research field is statistical physics, which means that I use statistics to model many particles interacting with one another in a single system. This allows us to predict and utilize the macroscopic properties of the materials used in modern medicine and technology.

My research focuses on the statistical physics of real and emergent electrolytes. One application of my work is superconductivity, which is a state in which the electrical resistance of certain materials becomes zero at low temperatures ...

I'm an EPSRC postdoctoral research fellow in the Physics Theory Group and a visiting scientist at Ecole normale supérieure in Paris. Previously, I was a doctoral researcher at both University College London and Ecole normale supérieure de Lyon, under the co-supervision of Steve Bramwell and Peter Holdsworth. After a short postdoc and a teaching position in the School of Mathematics at Bristol, I then moved to the School of Physics to start my EPSRC fellowship in August 2017.

I'm also an ambassador for STEM Learning: I teach coding to young people from disadvantaged backgrounds through Digilocal HBB, and act as ...
