I obtained an integrated maters in Theoretical Physics before pursuing a PhD in Materials Science and Engineering which focused on molecular dynamics simulations studying nucleation in inorganic systems.

I am now a member of the Chemoinformatics Research Group, working on improved methods for the automated design of novel drug compounds using evolutionary optimisation techniques. 

Research interests
  • Molecular dynamics and atomistic modelling
  • Interfacial free energy methods
  • Evolutionary algorithms
  • Python programming
