Background

I joined the APRG as a postgraduate student in January 2018, after receiving my undergraduate degree (Second Class Honours, First Degree) in Physics from TCD in June 2017. 

PhD Research

I was awarded an Irish Research Council Enterprise Partnership Scheme Scholarship in December 2017. The focus of my research is on the Tunnelling Anisotropic Magnetoresistance (TAMR) phenomenon in Antiferromagnetic (AFM) based Magnetic Tunnel Junction's (MTJ's). The AFM material I am currently interested in is Mn2Au, which has the highest theoretical Neel temperature of all known AFM materials to date.

High-quality Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) growth technique and characterisation methods such as X-ray Diffraction, X-ray Reflectivity, and electrical and magnetic measurements are involved heavily in my research.
