Research Interest
Very wide interests in modelling, especially including defects and defect processes in solids. Examples of current interests include:

  • Solid state approaches to quantum information processing
  • Mesoscopic modelling (biomedical, ablation, solid state e.g., ceramic superconductors, organic light-emitting diodes)
  • Electronic structure of defects in insulators and semiconductors
  • Defect processes and non-radiative transitions, including classical and quantum diffusion
  • Routes to spontaneous organisation in physical and biological systems
  • Random fields in solids and their consequences
  • The physical basis of biological behaviour, e.g., olfaction
  • Reliability of non-destructive inspection
  • Materials for fusion reactors
  • Diamond
  • Quantum dots and nanoscale behaviour
