Emily Cooper


In 2021, I graduated with a MPhys, BSc in Physics from the University of Leeds.

My PhD project is understanding the physics of Liquid Crystalline Elastomers (LCEs) and composites. I am particularly interested in the optical properties of LCEs and potential applications.

In 2022, I attended the International Liquid Crystal Conference (ILCC) and won a poster prize, sponsored by the journal ‘Crystals’.
