I completed my undergraduate degree in physics at the University of York and presented my masters thesis on the properties of a type of small scale tearing parity instability observed in gyrokinetic simulations. These look similar to the well understood micro-tearing modes but are driven by a different mechanism.

My PhD is looking at gyrokinetic simulations of electromagnetic instabilities in high beta tokamaks, also at York and supervised by Dr David Dickinson and Professor Howard Wilson.
