Research interests

My research has focussed on the study of microscopic diffusion of ions in thermoelectric AgCrSe2 and Na-ion battery cathode material NaxFe1/2Mn1/2O2. These energy materials were primarily investigated by performing both polarised and unpolarised neutron scattering experiments at the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source (Didcot, England) and the Institut Laue-Langevin (Grenoble, France).

As part of my PhD studies, I have also collaborated on the development of a new polarisation analysis technique (z+) lead by Dr. G Nilsen at the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source. The success of this technique will enable users to employ polarisation analysis on direct geometry neutron instrumentation, such as those found in TS2, to study polycrystalline systems.
