  • Chief Scientist Office
  • Focused mainly on the physics and applications of semiconductor devices and materials, my research interests target:
  • • Prediction and elucidation of the benefits of band structure engineering for optoelectronic material and device applications
  • • The introduction and development of widely useful techniques to analyse semiconductor electronic structure and its consequences
  • • Leading understanding of the electronic structure of crystalline and amorphous semiconductors
  • • Close collaboration with experimental physicists and device specialists, to determine the dominant gain and loss processes in optoelectronic materials and hence design and engineer a new generation of photonic devices with improved functionality.
  • Overall, I have developed and lead one of the few groups worldwide which have the aim and capability to start from first principles investigations of fundamental processes and carry through to investigations that guide and lead the development of photonic devices with enhanced capability and functionality.
