I'm in my third year of a four programme in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Theory and Simulation of Materials. I completed my MSc with a research project involving the investigation of water transport through graphene-based membranes with supervisors Erich Müller and Omar Matar. For my PhD I'm hoping to explore this further. This will involve analysing when and how the transport of liquids through confined spaces deviates from continuum predictions and how to incorporate molecular scale effects into the typical continuum description. This enables potential applications such as water purification to be examined with far less computational cost.
