I am a PhD student at the University of Manchester. I am funded by EPSRC through the Graphene NOWNANO Centre for Doctoral Training. My research interests are, broadly speaking, in the interactions between molecules from the atomic scale to collective effects up to the micron length scale. I am currently supervised by Dr Ingo Dierking and Dr Aravind Vijayaraghavan and I am investigating the effect of carbon nanomaterial dopants on the thermodynamic and structural properties of thermotropic liquid crystals. Previously, I have been investigating the dynamical behavior of water confined in graphene oxides with inelastic neutron scattering. During my undergraduate years I have also worked on a diverse range of research projects including accelerator science to atmospheric science.
