Research positions

I did my undergraduate masters degree in theoretical physics at the University of Sheffield.

I did my PhD entitle "The long and short of templated copying" with Dr Tom Ouldridge at Imperial College.

I am currently working on a project with Professor Chris Watkins and Dr Susanne Still on the "Intelligence in Context" grant.



Workshop on stochastic thermodynamics II


Thankyou to the WOST team for inviting me to speak on the topic of templated copying in biological settings.

APS March meeting


I presented at the March APS meeting, discussing the topic of my PhD; The long and short of templated copying



Nonequilibrium correlations in minimal dynamical models of polymer copying

Edge-effects dominate copying thermodynamics for finite-length molecular oligomers


Stochastic thermodynamics, Junior women's caucus

For current and aspiring PhD students and PostDocs studying stochastic thermodynamics

First meeting

June 10th 2021 3.30pm-6.30pm British Summer Time

This is the first meeting of the quarterly junior women’s caucus for the workshop on stochastic thermodynamics. Stochastic thermodynamics is a field with a very small number of senior women. At last year’s workshop (2020) no women gave talks, or asked any academic questions. This is largely a pipeline problem. We know that women are underrepresented at undergraduate and postgraduate level in physics more broadly.

It is vitally important therefore that women PostDocs and PhD students are equipped with the skills and confidence to progress to senior positions in the field and equally important that women undergraduate (Bachelors or Masters) students currently working on dissertations on stochastic thermodynamics are encouraged to apply to PhD programs within the field.

This recurring workshop aims to provide the following opportunities to its attendees:

  • Access to senior academics in the field.

  • Access to small group tutorials, lectures and skills workshops.

  • Access to a tight knit community of junior women in stochastic thermodynamics.

  • Priority access to the SFIs educational programs.

  • A platform which can be shaped and used by the needs of the attendees.
