I am a Lecturer in the Materials and Condensed Matter Physics group. My research interests include nanostructural characterisation using advanced techniques, including electron and scanned probe microscopies.
Modern technologies including microelectronics & coatings are driven by a synergy of new nano-structured materials and advanced characterisation tools. The materials promise unique or enhanced physical properties but can be compromised by subtle, atomic-scale variations.
My research focuses on nanometric characterisation of materials in order that we might capitalize on their emergent functionalities and develop transformative technologies.
