Hal recently graduated from the University of Nottingham with a first class Master’s degree in Physics. His final year project explored a non-contact method of manipulating the individual position of multiple levitated droplets within a superconducting solenoid magnet. His success in this field has opened up the opportunity for a novel method of modelling atomic acoustic interactions and crystal structure. Aside from this project Hal focused his academic interest on the modern applications of Physics, including electromagnetic devices and soft matter Physics. He was also the top student in a module which involved analyzing and debating the politics, perception, and philosophy of Physics in wider society. It was during these studies that Hal first encountered the role that IP strategy can play in the success of a company.
Hal additionally has a multilingual sociability, speaking his native English and also conversational German, developed whilst spending his 3rd year of University living in Munich and studying Physics at Ludwig-Maximillian-Universität.
