I am an experimental physicist understaking research focused on templating liquid crystal phases under the supervision of Dr. Mamatha Nagaraj. I completed an undergraduate master’s degree in Chemistry (MChem) at the University of Leicester in 2016. During the third year of my undergraduate studies, I undertook a year-long Erasmus project synthesising ionic liquid crystals as a member of Professor Sabine Laschat's team at the University of Stuttgart.

Research interests

The area of my research elegantly blends apects of materials science, physics and chemistry. My general topics of interest are:

  • Liquid crystal templating
  • Novel liquid crystal materials and phases
  • Polymers and photopolymerisation
  • Nanomaterials and nanotechnology
  • Novel material applications
  • Electro-optics
  • Organic synthesis


  • MChem Chemistry
