David Lloyd


I graduated from Imperial College London in 2010 with an MSci degree in Physics. My Master's dissertation centred on experimental investigations of self-organisation in diode-pumped solid-state lasers.

In 2015 I obtained a DPhil in Atomic and Laser Physics from the University of Oxford, under the supervision of Professor Simon Hooker. My thesis was titled "Characterizing the Spatial Properties of High Harmonic Generation".

I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Professor Hooker's group, where my interests lie in the parametric amplification of ultrafast laser pulses and their application to soft x-ray generation.

Previously, I was a demonstrator for the first year undergraduate experiments in Electrostatics and Magnetism. I am co-supervisor for the BA industrial project programme.

I am interested in the generation, characterization and application of short-wavelength (XUV/SXR) sources of light.
