Profile

I am an experimental physicist undertaking research in the field of thermotropic liquid crystal templating under the supervision of Dr. Mamatha Nagaraj. I previously completed an undergraduate master’s degree in Chemistry (MChem) at the University of Leicester. During the third year of my undergraduate studies, I undertook an Erasmus project involving the synthesis of ionic liquid crystals as part of the Laschat Research Group at the University of Stuttgart.

Research interests

  • Liquid crystal templating
  • Novel liquid crystal materials and phases
  • Surface modification of polymers
  • Nanomaterials and nanotechnology
  • Novel material applications
  • Synthesis and characterisation
