Career Summary

Biography

Research Expertise
My research expertise is in experimental surface science concerned with the interaction of molecules with metal surfaces. In particular, investigating novel chiral catalysis and environmental impact of particulates in the upper atmosphere.

Teaching Expertise
Teaching includes lectures in Statistical and Thermal Physics, Optics and Laser Physics and Atomic Physics. I am particularly interested in first year teaching practice and have participated in several workshops and 1st year teaching conferences.
