I obtained my PhD at Imperial College London, following a 1st class Honours degree (three medals for academic excellence) in Material Science and Engineering at the same university. My focus is on atomistic modelling of materials for nuclear applications. In particular, I study Be and Zr alloys for fusion and fission applications, as well as having a general interest for intermetallic compounds.
