Senior Research Associate

Research Overview

I am currently working as a postdoc on the condensed-matter atomic clock project, where I am developing an atomic clock prototype based on an EPR experiment on endohedral fullerenes.

Previously I was a postdoctoral researcher with the CNRS in Grenoble, France, studying the magnetic and magnetocaloric properties of some quantum magnets using dilution refrigerators, SQUIDs, and neutron scattering techniques. Prior to that I did my PhD at Cardiff University where I studied spin ice, isolated spin dynamics, developed a high frequency ac susceptometry device, and modelled the time evolution of entangled open quantum systems in the context of a muon experiment.
