I graduated from Newcastle University in 2009 with a Masters (MEng) in Mechanical Engineering with Mathematical modelling, and was recruited to work as part of the world-class Microsystems Group directly thereafter. I am currently studying for my PhD with the group. My research project involves development of a resonant magnetometer under parametric drive, with extension to the microscale as a long term goal. I was the recipient of the Whitton scholarship as an undergraduate; as a PGR, I have twice won Best Paper at the school Postgraduate Conference, as well as Best Student Paper at the 2011 IMAPS DPC in Phoenix. Other interests include tribology of arthroplasties, nonlinear dynamical systems, and computational mechanics.
