I am a PhD student studying Complexity Science at the University of Warwick. I completed an Mphys at Oxford University (2012) and an MSc in Complexity Science at Warwick (2013).

My supervisors are David Quigley, Gavin Bell and Peter Brommer. My work involves constructing models of epitaxial graphene growth in different conditions, and with different interactions with a metal substrate, based on experimental observations of mismatch structural feedback in graphene growth on copper (Wilson, Neil R., et al. "Weak mismatch epitaxy and structural Feedback in graphene growth on copper foil." Nano Research 6.2 (2013): 99-112.) and growth on liquid substrates (Geng, Dechao, et al. "Uniform hexagonal graphene flakes and films grown on liquid copper surface." Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences 109.21 (2012): 7992-7996.).

I have constructed a lattice Monte Carlo model of growth of graphene on a dynamically shifting substrate, and am working on a Molecular Dynamics model using the widely distributed open source code LAMMPS (http://lammps.sandia.gov/). Movies will be uploaded here at some point.

In 2016 I co-founded a data science consultancy company with Neil Jenkins, complexdatasolutions.co.uk
