Biography

Alasdair Clark is a Professor of Nanoscale Engineering working in the James Watt School of Engineering at the University of Glasgow. After obtaining his undergraduate degree in Applied Physics from the University of Strathclyde, Prof. Clark moved to the University of Glasgow to pursue a PhD in Nano-Plasmonics. On completion of his PhD studies he took a short Post-Doc appointment at the University of California, Berkeley, before returning to Glasgow to start the Nanophotonic Devices research group.
