Ms Katie O'Flynn
Katie holds a BA in Theoretical Physics from Trinity College Dublin and an MSc in Physics from University College London. Her PhD is focused on using Paul traps (electrical analogues of optical tweezers) to levitate particles in vacuum and expose them to a variety of fields for the purposes of probing fundamental physics at the microscale.
