Aaron began his studies at the University of Edinburgh in 2012 attaining his Master’s degree in 2017, graduating with a 2.1. During his undergraduate studies, he spent one year at the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore working on the synthesis of gold nanostars for SERS contrast agents. Aaron is now starting the first year of his PhD at UCL.
Aaron’s PhD will involve investigating the structure-property relationships of magnetic nanostructures as negative contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging, as well as their interaction with human cell lines.
Aaron’s PhD is sponsored by the EPSRC.
