First-year PhD student in the Molecular and Nanoscale Physics group of the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Leeds. Graduated from the University of Leeds in 2018 with first-class MPhys and BSc in Physics.

Research interests

My research project title is ‘Advanced Biophotonic Materials: Developing a Toolkit for Quantum Dot-Membrane-Protein Nanocomposites’, where energy transfer mechanisms between hybrid assemblies of quantum dots and light-harvesting proteins within a liposome will be investigated. Key techniques employed include steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy.
