I am currently a postdoctoral researcher working in the group of Prof Danna Freedman at Northwestern University. I completed my PhD studies in September 2014 after having worked in the Molecular Magnetism Group at the University of Manchester, UK, with Dr Floriana Tuna and professors David Collison, Eric McInnes, and Richard Winpenny.

My current research involves the pursuit of novel binary intermetallics using a range of disparate chemical approaches that include: (i) nanoparticle synthesis, (ii) very high pressure and high temperature reactions, and (iii) the electrochemical deposition of thin films. The compounds being targeted could exhibit exciting magnetic and/or superconductive properties.
