Laura Corner

Academic Visitor

After working in the Oxford Physics department and John Adams Institute for Accelerator Science I left in 2018 to take up a lectureship at the University of Liverpool. I am an academic visitor in the physics department continuing to collaborate on laser plasma wakefield acceleration research with the group of Prof. Simon Hooker. I am always keen to hear from students who are interested in pursuing a PhD in laser accelerator physics.

I carry out research in the area of lasers applied to accelerator science. This includes laser driven plasma wakefield acceleration, the development of novel high power, high repetition rate lasers and the use of lasers for particle accelerator diagnostics. I carry out research on fibre laser technology at the University of Liverpool and national facilities including the Daresbury Laboratory and Central Laser Facility at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory with collaborators from the Cockcroft and John Adams Institutes. Students interested in PhD research in laser or accelerator science are welcome to contact me for more information (laura.corner@liverpool.ac.uk)
