senior lecturer at Department of Physics and Astronomy, Materials Physics
My main research interests are the magnetism of materials (crystalline and amorphous alloys, nano-structures), semiconductors and self-assembly. Novel properties arise from symmetry breaking, topology and confinement effects that become important at the nanometer length-scale. The study of the influence and hierarchy of length- and energy- scales on the physical properties of such materials has been the main focus of my research and is a personal challenge for the future.
