I graduated from Cork Institute of Technology in 2004 with a B.Sc. in Applied Physics and Instrumentation.  During my time as an undergraduate I developed an interest in research.  This interest was strengthened during my final year project, "Calibration and application of an IR analysis system".  The work I did on this project led me to have an interest in optics and atomic structure, which led me here.

Since September 2004, I have been part of the Quantum Optics Group, under the supervision of Dr. Síle Nic Chormaic.  As part of the group, I am working with cold atoms.    In 2006 I was awarded an IRCSET scholarship under the Embark Initative for my PhD studies.
