Biography

Mitchell Kenney received his M.Sci. in Physics & Nanotechnology at The University of Birmingham in 2011, continuing on to do his Ph.D. with Professor Shuang Zhang in the Metamaterials Research Group, graduating in July 2016. Previous research includes the investigation of plasmonic, metallic and dielectric metasurfaces for manipulating the wavefront of light, with a key interest in Pancharatnam-Berry phase.  He is currently a Research Assistant in the School of Engineering where his background experience in metasurfaces aims to be of benefit to the Supercamera and Quantum Hub Projects.
