I have been employed as a PhD candidate since September 2018. Although my background is in physics and radiometrics, my current work focuses on a model for nanoscale friction; drug resistance in myeloid leukaemia; and, most recently, extreme value statistics. This involves numerical simulations, data analysis and mathematical derivations. For more info, send me an email.

|University of Liverpool||MSc in Radiometrics: Instrumentation and Modelling – Distinction
Studied the basics of radiation principles and their detection; understanding and using detection systems; and replicating data with modelling detector set-ups.
During this time I took a particular interest in radiation safety and protection. I choose this as the topic of my dissertation particularly focusing on risk assessments. For my project I created a successful model of a mobile compton camera using Geant4 and collected data to validate the model.
Along with Geant4, I also became skilled in using MATLAB, MCNP, ProSpect and Maestro.
|EQF Level** 7|
|Manchester Metropolitan University||Postgraduate certificate in Education in Physics with Maths – Pass with Merit
As well as real practical experience teaching Key Stage 3 and GCSE science and maths in several schools in the Greater Manchester area, I studied pedagogical topics relating to my practice. I learnt how to plan and deliver high quality lessons and produced several literature reviews and reports of the theoretical foundations of teaching. I achieved qualified teacher status (QTS).
|EQF Level 7|
|University of Manchester||BSc(Hons) in Physics – 2:2
During my time at the University of Manchester, I chose to study a general overview of physics and its applications. The option topics I selected included theoretical topics, such as random processes; applied topics, such as biophysics; and more creative topics, such as science fiction and film. I also undertook a lot of laboratory work and produced a dissertation on the application of materials with a negative refractive index as invisibility cloaks.
