Research summary

I am a Lecturer in the Department of Physics at the University of Bristol. My research uses advanced microstructural characterisation techniques to characterise the structure and chemistry of materials for nuclear power plants, semiconductor devices and aerospace. In addition I supervise final year undergraduate and PhD projects, and teach courses for the MSc in Nuclear Science and Engineering and at undergraduate level in Physics.

After obtaining my PhD in chemical physics from the University of Bristol I worked for two years in the renewable energy sector consulting on the engineering of wind and solar power plants. Subsequently I spent nearly ...

Biography

My research uses advanced microstructural characterisation techniques to characterise the structure and chemistry of materials for nuclear power plants, semiconductor devices and aerospace. I use a wide variety of microscopy and spectroscopy techniques including atom probe tomography, electron microscopy, secondary ion mass spectrometry, X-ray photoemission and X-ray diffraction to investigate materials including zirconium alloys, actinides, steel, nickel superalloys, silicon, biomaterials and diamond.

I obtained an MSci in Physics with Astrophysics from the University of Bristol in 2008, and subsequently a PhD in physical chemistry, where I studied the electronic and structural properties of surface termination of diamond. My work on ...
