My research group uses ultrafast spectroscopy techniques to investigate the physics of novel materials on short time scales of around one picosecond. We also develop sources and detectors of terahertz radiation. I am part of the Ultrafast & Terahertz Photonics group in the Physics Department. Please see a list of our recent publications for more details on my research. I also direct the Warwick Centre for Ultrafast Spectroscopy, a facility for UV, visible, IR and THz ultrafast spectroscopy, and which is one of the university's Research Technology Platforms.

Teaching and Administration
I am on a sabbatical from teaching during the 2022-2023 academic year.
I lead the Warwick Centre for Ultrafast SpectroscopyLink opens in a new window, a research facility that uses short laser pulses to probe the properties of new materials.
A bit about me, in reverse chronological order! I am an Associate Professor (Reader) in the Department of Physics at Warwick, where I have been based since 2013. From 2009 to 2014 I was an EPSRC Career Acceleration Fellow, held first at the University of Oxford, then Warwick. Before that I completed a postdoc at ETH Zurich with Prof. Jérôme Faist, and my PhD at Oxford with Dr. Michael Johnston. For my undergraduate degree I studied Natural Sciences at Cambridge.
