Thin film materials scientist

I am a thin-film material scientist who manages the Centre for Applied Superconductivity, in the Materials Science department at Oxford University. I am also the chair of the LGBT+ advisory group to Oxford University and in 2018 I won the first diversity role model award from the University. I run a youth group for LGBTI+ young people and give many talks in schools and within the University on LGBTI+ inclusion. I am a Stonewall School Role Model, and presented a talk at a TEDx London event in 2018. I am involved in many projects aimed at improving equality in STEMM subjects by supporting people of diverse backgrounds. In 2017 I won a Points of Light Award from the UK Prime Minister.
