Andrew Whittington is a PhD student in the Nanoscience group at King's. His current work uses stochastic calculus to model thermal gradients and electric fields in porous nanostructures. His reading explores applications of electromigration for nanofabrication.

Andrew graduated from the University of Strathclyde in 2020 with an MSc in Optical Technology. His master's thesis covered the design of interferometers for making closed-cycle cryostats appropriate in polariton experiments.
