I joined the Department of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering at University College London (UCL) in October 2014. I am currently pursuing my PhD part-time and I am based full-time at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), where I am a Senior Research Scientist within the Acoustics group. The financial support to undertake my PhD with UCL is provided by NPL. For my PhD, I am interested in developing photoacoustic sources capable of generating broad bandwidth (0-100MHz), planar (several millimetres) and high amplitude (> 2 MPa) ultrasound pulse for applications in ultrasound metrology. The sources are nanocomposites made of multi-walled carbon nanotubes and various polymeric materials. The physical makeup of the desired photoacoustic source is aided by k-Wave toolbox.
