We're recruiting PhD students for a range of projects.
Materials with nanometre-scale size and structure often exhibit unique properties with relevance to applications in areas such as catalysis, solar energy and medicine. We develop and employ advanced techniques such as electron microscopy and predictive materials modelling to uncover new fundamental understanding and help drive technological innovation.
Work in our group spans the full range from highly fundamental research aimed at uncovering and understanding new physics to applied research focussed on the development and optimisation of nanomaterials for applications. We are also playing a leading role in the development of advanced techniques to better understand the properties and functionality of nanomaterials (both experimental and theoretical).
