Carbon-based electronic materials, Graphene, Carbon nanotubes, Conducting polymers
Current research interests focus mainly on the electronic conduction properties of novel materials including:
Graphene - sheets of carbon only one atom thick, in collaboration with German experimentalists.
Carbon nanotube networks - modelling the resistivity, thermoelectric power, current-voltage characteristics and other properties.
