Tiffany graduated from the University of St Andrews with a First Class Honours degree in Physics in 2012, where she was awarded both the class medal for 5th Level Physics and the SELEX Galileo prize for the best MPhys project in Experimental Physics.
She is currently pursuing a PhD in Atomic and Laser Physics at the University of Oxford, where her main research interests are in manipulating ultracold atoms using novel magnetic and optical trapping potentials. Her fascination with ultracold atomic Physics was kindled during an undergraduate summer research project in St Andrews, leading to the MPhys project based on developing a new method for calculating holographic traps for ultracold atoms for which she was delighted to win an Undergraduate Award.
“I hope to pursue a career in cold atoms research, and have so far loved the research experience, with its moments ranging from fascinating to challenging to sometimes ridiculous.”
