As a PhD student in Edinburgh, I am trying to see how the amorphous form can be studied in energetic materials, whether it would be find new techniques in my project or just try new things in my city. This drives me to try something new. PoS is one of the things I am excited to be part of.

I’m a PhD student in the Soft Matter department at the University of Edinburgh. My research focuses on a technique termed 'DNA origami' where DNA can be taken out of a cell and folded into basically any shape you can imagine! I use this technique to design materials composed of DNA that have excitin...
