I completed my PhD from the University of Exeter in 2006. The project involved the fabrication and characterisation of magnetic tunnel junctions. After this I carried out a year in industry at Seagate technology, designing and prototyping magnetic read-heads. In 2007 I decided to go back to academia and took up postdoctoral positions at the University of York and then Imperial College where I remained for four years. Throughout my academic career, my research has centred on magnetic materials but more recently has focussed on 3D nano-magnetic systems. I was awarded a SBP fellowship at Cardiff University in November 2012. I am employed as a permanent lecturer in physics and am currently the principle investigator on EPSRC funded grant \"Three-dimensional Artificial Spin-Ice\" (EP/L006669/1)
