Personal profile

Research Focus

I’m a PhD student in the Centre for Light Matter Interactions at Queen’s University Belfast, funded by HB11 Energy with additional support from the Dunville Scholarship.

My PhD research focuses on laser-driven proton-boron fusion, which has possible applications as a compact alpha-particle source and in energy production. I have simulation experience using the FLASH radiative-hydrodynamic code and the particle-in-cell codes EPOCH and WarpX. I’ve participated in several experimental campaigns focusing on laser-solid interactions for the purpose of ion-acceleration and/or driving pB11 fusion reactions.
