Professor, School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Nottingham
My research interests span a number of topical themes in nanometre scale science with a particular current focus on single atom/molecule manipulation using scanning probes. Other areas of interest include self-assembly and far-from-equilibrium self-organisation, pattern formation in nano- and microstructured systems, nanoparticle structure and properties, synchrotron-based spectroscopies (photoemission, X-ray absorption, X-ray standing wave spectroscopy), (endo)fullerenes, and molecule-surface interactions.
I also have a keen interest in outreach activities, primary and secondary education, and both science and higher education funding policy.
