I am the Group Leader of the Quantum Matter in High Magnetic Fields and I am a Senior Research Fellow at Somerville College, Oxford. I am involved with setting up the new Oxford Centre for Applied Superconductivity (CFAS) and its new research activities in Physics. Since 2011 I have been organizing the Oxford Symposium on Quantum Materials combined with an expert visitor programme both funded by the EPSRC as well as a Cafe Scientifique of Quantum Materials dedicated to open discussions on quantum materials.
Previously, I held independent research positions funded by the EPSRC through a Career Accelaration Fellowship at the University of Oxford and a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship at the University of Bristol and University of Oxford. I was Departmental Lecturer and Post-Doctoral Research Assistant at the University of Oxford, after my PhD in Oxford at the Queen's College. I was a member of the Superconductivity Group Committee of the Institute of Physics, and the SelCom, EuroMagnet II Selection Committee for access to the high magnetic fields facilities in Europe. My part-time research work has been combined with raising two children.
I was awarded two prestigious prizes Brian Pippard Prize 2019 on Superconductivity from the UK Institute of Physics for significant contribution to superconductivity and the EuroMagnet Prize 2011 for research in high magnetic fields to understand iron-based superconductors.
