My name is Khaya and I’m originally from Surrey. I completed my undergraduate degree in Physics at Swansea University and an MSc in Data-Intensive Astrophysics at Cardiff University the following year. I have been fortunate enough to gain a wealth of experience in astronomy and computer programming from both. 

My MSc project involved investigating the hexagonal wurtzite crystal structure of a gallium nitride thin film using the Fast Fourier Transform and correlating its surface morphology to its crystal structure. I hope to further enhance my understanding of semiconductor materials for space applications. 

Outside of studying I enjoy playing the piano and guitar and trying to learn new languages.

Research Summary
For my PhD Project, I will be supervised by Professor Huiyun Liu of UCL.  My project title is: III-V quantum dot lasers grown on patterned silicon and SOI substrates by MBE
