I am currently studying for a Ph.D as part of the Slowlight project. I work with fellow Ph.D student Lee Weller, and supervisors Ifan Hughes and Charles Adams. My research interests involve experimental and theoretical studies of spectroscopy, pulse propagation and the Faraday effect, in thermal alkali metal vapours.

My am currently working on finding the weak probe limit of resonant pulses in rubidium, with a view to making an all optical switch harnessing the slowlight Faraday effect with optical pumping.
