I am a condensed matter experimental physicist that specialises in low-dimensional semiconductor devices.

After gaining a degree in physics from the University of Strathclyde I joined the Semiconductor Physics group at the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge to study for a PhD. During this period I received an industrial CASE award from Toshiba Research Europe to investigate quantum dots for use as single photon detectors. Following my PhD, I was employed by Innovia Technology in Cambridge and worked on a wide range of projects for clients that included Shell, Rolls-Royce, NIKE and Boeing. I joined Northumbria University to work on photovoltaics in 2009.
