About Me

I completed my undergraduate degree here at Warwick in 2010 and did my final year project in the Microscopy Group working with Dr Neil Wilson using AFM to study reduced graphene oxide and carbon nanotubes. I am currently working on my PhD under the supervision of Dr Jeremy Sloan where I will be investigating carbon supported nanomaterials, (again carbon nanotubes and flat graphene like monolayers) using TEM.

Final Year Project Pictures

These three images were taken from a mathematica program which fitted several parameters to a Frequency vs. Voltage Curve for the AFM cantilever operating in Scanned Capacitance Mode for every pixel in the image .The leftmost image is the height image. The center image represents the strength of the capacitive forces between tip and sample. And the rightmost image is of the surface potential.

Anaglyph Image of GO Sheet

This image is an anaglyph designed to be viewed using Red/Cyan 3D glasses. The image shows the height of the GO sheet whilst the colour overlay shows the change in phase for the AFM cantilever due to the presence of the GO sheet.

PhD Project

Title: Low keV Imaging of Carbon Supported Nanomaterials

Supervisor: Dr Jeremy Sloan

Aim: To produce high quality images of various carbon supported nanomaterials using Aberration Corrected TEM and Exit Wave Reconstruction. This will involve learning to modify the available EWR code and applying it to produce images from which we can determine the structure of the nanomaterials and hopefully relate this structural information to their properties.

Lab Demonstration

I am also currently demonstrating the experiment S2 - Compton Scattering in the 2nd year labs.
