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.
