Daisy with the superconducting solanoid

Meet Daisy Shearer, an experimental quantum physicist finding ways to control the spin state of electrons!

Daisy Shearer is a PhD student at the University of Surrey working primarily within the Photonics and Quantum Sciences group at the Advanced Technology Institute (ATI). She holds an integrated master’s degree in Physics with first-class honours from the University of Surrey (2014-2018). During her degree, she cultivated a passion for experimental physics and quantum technologies. Now, she conducts applied spintronics research by finding ways to carefully control the spin state of electrons in semiconductor materials. Daisy is enthusiastic about encouraging girls to pursue STEM subjects and making science accessible to everyone.
