Dr Todorov’s research interests are in the area of nanoscale systems. His main research areas are transport in nanostructures and electron-nuclear dynamics. Nanostructures under bias can carry current densities 5-7 orders of magnitude higher than those in a lightbulb. How do electrons and atomic motion behave under these extreme conditions? This is a rich field, both theoretically and experimentally.
Himeslf and his colleagues work on the theory and simulation of these systems. Funding has come from EPSRC, the Leverhulme Trust and the Royal Society.
