Research overview

My research group uses ultrafast spectroscopy techniques to investigate the physics of novel materials on short time scales of around one picosecond. Please see my group page for more details, including a list of our recent publications for more details.

Funded PhD studentships: Please contact me if you are interested in a PhD in this area.

Ultrafast spectroscopy

  • Terahertz time-domain spectroscopy
  • Optical pump, THz probe
  • Time-resolved reflectivity

Semiconductor nanomaterials

  • III-V semiconductors
  • Quantum wells and heterostructures
  • Nanowires and porous surfaces

Functional oxides

  • Multiferroics
  • Oxide nanostructures


I am lecturing the second-year module PX267 "Hamiltonian Mechanics" this academic year (2017-2018) in term 1.

I am also lecturing the "Quasiparticles and Excitations" part of the fourth-year module Condensed Matter Physics 2 in term 1 (2017-18).


I am an Associate Professor (Senior Lecturer) in the Department of Physics at Warwick. I moved my group to Warwick in April 2013. From 2009 to 2014 I was an EPSRC Career Acceleration Fellow, held first at the University of Oxford.

I am currently Postgraduate Admissions Tutor, see
