Katie is investigating crystallisation properties of different classes of materials. The results will be compared with crystallisability predictions carried out as part of <a title=”Mr. Jerome G. P. Wicker (D.Phil. 2013-2016)” href=”http://edit.xtl.org.uk/jerome-wicker”>Jerome Wicker</a>’s Part II and DPhil research, and previous measurement of molecular crystallisation properties.
Katie undertook rapid prototyping of her crystallisation apparatus using Lego, LEDs, plenty of solder and a Raspberry Pi computer. After work she enjoys her role as Safety Officer of the University pistol club.
