Personal profile


  • BSc in physics from the University of Portsmouth 2017-2020, with a specialisation in experimental quantum optics.
  • MSc in Quantum Technology from the University of Sussex 2020-2021, with a specialisation in Penning trap technology.

Currently undertaking a joint PhD project between Royal Holloway and Diamond Light Source. Project is entitled: "Feasibility of Cherenkov Diffraction Radiation Beam Position Monitor for High-Energy Electron Machines". Goal of the project is to contribute to the development of an eventual BPM utilising ChDR that would be applicable to a high-energy accelerator, such as DLS, but also contribute to the further understanding of the ChDR phenomenon.
