After previously working in the area of Astrophysics, exploring Molecular cloud structure and nearby stellar object distribution, my interests have since focused on the instruments required to obtain such astrophysical data. I have therefore been moving towards condensed matter physics through photovoltaics and detector research, where I am now working on X-ray detecting materials for space applications at the University of Sussex.
