I am theoretical condensed matter physicist working to understand and model quantum transport in solid-state and cold atom systems.  I am currently investigating the electronic properties of van der Waals heterostructures (which consist of stacks of different types of 2D crystals), the dynamics of electrons in semiconductor superlattices and the dynamics of ultracold atoms in optical lattices.

I completed my PhD at the University of Nottingham in 2010 and soon after was awarded funding for a Knowledge Transfer Secondment with e2v technologies.  In 2013 I was awarded an Early Career Leverhulme Fellowship and I started in Loughborough in October 2016 as a Vice Chancellor's Research fellow.
