Research

Research Interests

My research group primarily studies functional micro- to nano-scale thin film materials and the techniques used to fabricate such materials. These engineered nanomaterials find application where we can exploit the ability to tailor their composition and morphology. Applications include optical filters, composite materials, and sensors.

Current Research

Utilising the fabrication tools in our own laboratory and the growing suite of micromachining, nanofabrication, and materials characterisation tools available on campus, our current research activities involve design, fabrication, and characterisation of nanostructured materials for use in devices and, in the longer term, integration into complete systems.
