I am a Research Fellow in Materials & Condensed Matter Physics (MCMP) and Manager of the Kelvin Nanocharacterisation Centre (KNC).
Please visit Damien McGrouther's personal research page for more details about my work.

My research aims to provide fundamental insight into the behaviour and performance properties of technologically relevant materials and structures with nanometre scale dimensions. My work focuses on the following areas:

  • Nanomagnetism: domain & domain wall behaviour in thin films and nanostructures influenced by rapid magnetic field pulses and current induced spin transfer
  • Development of novel Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) techniques for imaging magnetic structure with high spatial and temporal resolution and performance of in-situ experiments
  • Application and development of advanced focused ion beam techniques for nano-patterning, TEM sample preparation, high-resolution 3D microscopy and in-situ experimental methods for electron microscopy
