Working alongside two Nobel laureates on technological developments that could transform the world as we know it is all in a day’s work for me (PhD Nanomechanics of Graphene), whose research into graphene is giving me insight into a future with limitless possibilities.

One of the best things about Manchester is the huge expanse of research that’s going on here. If you have an idea, the facilities you need are here somewhere – so you can get very creative with your research, because there are no limitations.

That’s quantity – but there’s also quality, especially in the National Graphene Institute. Every bit of kit here is the newest version and the highest spec. The precision and speed you can work at is incredible.

On having Nobel laureates as colleagues

The whole world wants to work with these two Nobel laureates. They only pick the very best, so working alongside them means you’re also working with the best physicists and engineers from around the world.

Witnessing their methods, their efficiency and their intelligence allows you to become an independent researcher very quickly.

My speciality is membranes. A graphene membrane can split water and create high-efficiency energy from the protons. Imagine the electronics that you use in everyday life – your kettle, toaster, computers, home telephone – all those things could be powered by capsules of water the size of an AA battery.

On collaboration

At Manchester, you have a huge pool of experienced researchers who are all open to discussion. You learn about new fields, which broadens your own research scope. And, when you come across a problem in your PhD, rather than spending time reading online sources, you can get up from your desk, walk to someone else’s office and ask for help. Everyone works together.
