Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests are focused on exceeding current limitations on the rate and sensitivity of scanning probe microscopy measurements.

To this end I am involved in the following projects: the fastest contact mode AFM in the world (over 1,200 frames per second); the development of a video-rate non-contact technique, unique to Bristol called Transverse Dynamic Force Microscopy (TDFM); as well as the creation of cantilever arrays for mass sensing, capable of femto-gram measurements.
