Personal profile

Research interests

Kerrianne completed her undergraduate Masters programme in Physics with the University of Bath, graduating in 2014. This included a 3 month research project in nonlinear optics at the University of São Paulo.

Her PhD project contributed to a multidisciplinary project (Proteus) that aims to deliver an immediate transformative point-of-care sensing device for intensive care unit patients. Her PhD work with Tim Birks developed multicore optical fibres for multifunctional sensing and imaging.

She now works with Richard Bowman on developing an optical system for investigating the dim modes of plasmonic nanostructures.
