  • Research Interests:
    My research is mainly focused on the theory of phase transitions which is funded by the Imperial College PhD Scholarship under the supervision of professor Vvedensky. I am mostly interested in martensitic transformations, the cooperative Jahn-Teller effect and the glass transition. I am currently investigating what influences the Jahn-Teller effect could have on crystallization and the glass transition, and how machine learning techniques may give us insight into phase transitions.
  • Higher Education:
    I obtained my BSc degree in "Physics with Theoretical Physics" at Imperial College London in 2013. My BSc project was on the solutions of the Schrödinger's equation in curved spaces. I was awarded the Ken Allen prize for academic excellence.
    I also obtained my MASt (Master of Advanced Study) in Mathematics (also known as part III of the Mathematical Tripos) from the University of Cambridge in 2014.
