Dr Miryam Arredondo

IN A DARKENED ROOM THE LIGHT OF DISCOVERY

"Electron microscopy is a key tool in the new world of research where everything is at the nanoscale, getting smaller and smaller. To be able to fully understand physical phenomena at the atomic level is crucial."

Dr Robert Pollard

Nanotechnology: Spinning out Innovation

"We’ve developed novel nanostructured surfaces, composed of nanorods or nanotubes, which can be used in a variety of sensing applications and tailored to different markets – to detect proteins, for example, or hazardous gases."

Dr David Jess

FINDING GLOBAL BENEFITS THROUGH SOLAR IMAGING

"I want to examine the mass and energy of structures flowing through the sun’s atmosphere, but they move quickly, they migrate and evolve, and you have to take very rapid images."

Dr Dermot Green

I am a theoretical physicist.

The overarching theme of my research is the development of theoretical and ab initio computational approaches to describe quantum scattering/many-body processes of relevance to physics, chemistry and materials science, with a strong emphasis on connecting with experiment. Specific interests include: (Diagrammatic) atomic many-body theory, Low-energy antimatter (positron and positronium) scattering and annihilation with atoms and molecules, Theory of complex atom+atom collisions and ultracold molecules (coupled-channel theory and MOLSCAT developer), Quantum chaos, Intense laser plasma theory (strong-field quantum electrodynamics).
