M. Williams

During my Chemical Physics undergraduate masters at Bristol, I discovered an interest in material and surface science, which I was able to develop further during physical chemistry and physics lectures in my third and forth years. My final year product was spent in the Bristol diamond group supervised by Paul May, where I found the theoretical and practical aspects to research in diamond science to be fun and interesting. I have been playing university Ultimate Frisbee for 4 years and I am looking forward to using the travelling opportunities the DST CDT gives me to be able to play Ultimate with many different teams (and study at the universities obviously), before returning to Bristol for my PhD.
