I am a postdoctoral research fellow interested in real space experimental investigation of soft and biological systems via optical microscopy. I obtained an Integrated Masters, MPhys. degree in Physics from the University of Edinburgh in 2009 and a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Bristol in 2014. I have previously held postdoctoral research positions at the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) in the laboratory of Prof. Todd Squires (2015-2018) and at University College London (UCL) and the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) in Prof. Giuseppe Battaglia's group.
Areas of specialism
My research at the University of Surrey focuses on diffusiophoresis - the phenomenon by which a gradient in solution concentration can induce the motion of suspended microscopic objects.
