Formerly at Lancaster University
My original training was in Biophysics (Leeds, 1970) and most of my research activities since then have had a strongly interdisciplinary flavour. They have ranged from Magnetic Resonance in Biochemical systems (Oxford, 1970 - 1975) to more Physics- and Device-orientated work at Lancaster (1978 - present). For 12 years my main research interest was in thin Molecular Films, particularly Langmuir-Blodgett Films and their potential applications in optical and electronic devices. Although I have now worked in a Physics Department for 20 years I would still be equally at home in new collaborations involving Chemistry or Biology. Over the last 5 years I have been actively involved in 3 main areas of research:
This has varied widely over the years but has recently involved:
I am responsible for co-ordinating the LAMSA (Lancaster Materials and Surface Analysis) service for outside customers (see the LAMSA web pages), commercial activities and income generation in Physics, and the annual Science week (SET) activities in Physics.
