I am currently a Graduate student in my 1st year of a Condensed Matter DPhil.
I am based both at the University of Oxford and at the Diamond Light Source, with Professor Amalia Coldea and Dr Timur Kim as my supervisors.
Within the topic of Superconductivity, my research is focused on the nematic phase of iron-based Superconductors. These strongly correlated materials can stabilize different competing electronic phases from which superconductivity emerges.
The techniques that I am using to explore this research include: Transport, Magnetotransport, Elastoresistance, X-ray Diffraction and Angle-Resolved-PhotoEmission-Spectroscopy (ARPES). These experiments are performed while applying strain to the sample, as strain couples to the nematic order parameter.
