I am a first-year theoretical physics PhD student. My research is in the fields of quantum thermodynamics and open quantum systems, specifically looking at developing quantum spin dynamics equations.
I grew up in the South West of the UK and graduated with an integrated master's in physics from the University of Exeter in 2021. Since, I have been here pursuing a PhD with the Quantum Non-Equilibrium Group under the supervision of Prof. Janet Anders and Dr Simon Horsley.

All elementary particles possess a property called `spin’ which can be manipulated to encode data, for example in magnetic hard drives . In attempts to increase the storage of such devices, the densities of these `data bits’ (also called grains) in such devices is being increased . In such limits, quantum effects become important, and this is the primary focus of my PhD project. Specifically, the classical equations used to model magnetisation dynamics in these regimes can be shown to fail , necessitating the formulation of a new theory. My work builds upon that of my supervisors and colleagues who derive such a theory  - you can find their work here.
