My research interests

My overarching research interest is in self-organisation and emergent phenomena in the physical and life sciences. Nanotechnology - the understanding, characterisation, and manipulation of matter on the scale of several atoms to large macromolecules - is the vehicle for this activity. My prime focus is on the science and applications nanoscale carbon macromolecules (fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, and graphene) - considered to be the archetypal building blocks of nanotechnology - in the physical and life sciences. I also have the related interests: nano-bio interface phenomena, percolation in molecular networks, quantum electronic phenomena, and nanoscale magnetism.
