Jess joined Dehns in August 2019 after graduating with a first class Integrated Master’s Degree in Physics from the University of Edinburgh. In the later years of her degree, she completed modules relating to the physics and applications of lasers, nuclear detectors, and medical devices.
For her Master’s project, Jess focused on Condensed Matter Physics and used confocal fluorescence microscopy to study emulsions with a nematic liquid crystal component. She explored how percolating defect structures could ‘pin’ the droplets into place and how this could be applied to improve emulsion stability.
