I have recently graduated from the University of York with a Masters in Physics. During my undergraduate degree I specialised in Plasma Physics, however, my Masters project was engineering based, and involved developing a control moment gyroscope for a motorbike. I also have experience with theoretical work, having completed a summer internship looking at angular momentum generation in nuclear fission.
My PhD is supervised by Dr. Istvan Cziegler, and will involve looking at the interplay between the plasma edge to scrape-off layer coupling and divertor conditions. Currently, these regions can be modelled individually; however, I hope to gain a deeper insight into each of these in order to contribute to an integrated model of them together.
