Research summary

My group's research interests focus mainly on nanostructured materials and devices and their applications in electronics and photonics. We are particularly interested in:

Memristive devices and systems

Neuromorphic (brain-inspired) devices and systems

Resistance switching in silicon oxides

Light-triggered resistance switching

Silicon photonics

Light emission from silicon nanostructures

Quantum confinement effects

Self-assembled nanostructures

Teaching summary

I teach the Nanotechnology MSc Module Photonics in Nanosystems

I am also a second year undergraduate tutor.
