My PhD is concerned with the modelling (and development of supporting theory) of photonic crystal fibres (PCFs).
This involves the use of techniques from homogenisation theory and results on the convergence of thin-structure PDE problems to singular-structure ODE problems.
This is with the objective of providing an analytic model which can link the geometry and material properties of PCFs to its operating performance, to improve fibre design.
My PhD supervisors are Dr Kirill Cherednichenko (80%); Prof David Bird (10%), and Prof Chris Bowen (10%).
I graduated from the University of Bath in Summer 2017 with an MSci Mathematics and Physics, and I am now part of the 4th cohort of the SAMBa CDT at the University of Bath. I completed the MRes year of the SAMBa program in September 2018.
