Research Interests

Study of the electrical properties of low-dimensional and nanoscale systems using probe microscopy, low temperature measurement, electron surface spectroscopy and Technology Computer Aided Design modelling. Interests cover a broad range of experimental condensed matter physics, including semiconductor surface science in silicon and diamond, superconducting devices and soft matter, such as polymers and proteins.

Previous Experience

Research Scientist, then Senior Research Scientist (1998-2000)
Fundamental Measurements Group, National Physical Laboratory, UK.
