Personal profile

Personal profile

I am an Astrophysics Research Fellow at Royal Holloway, University of London. 

My background is in Particle Physics, having obtained a Masters degree in 2019 and a PhD degree in 2023 at Royal Holloway, University of London.

My Masters project, Calibration of a High-Pressure Time Projection Chamber, involved working on the hardware and calibration systems of a High-Pressure Time Projection Chamber, to be used in Neutrino Physics Research. I was directly involved in the calibration and construction of this detector.

My PhD project, Detector Development for Particle Physics and Applications to Environmental Monitoring, involved the development of a novel device, called PlomBOX, employing a CMOS sensor and lead-sensing bacteria to assay lead in drinking water, up to the World Health Organisation’s upper limit of 10 ppb. I was involved in the development of the data acquisition and slow control tools and developed the analysis interface used by the PlomBOX.

My research interest is the timing variations of radio pulsars.
