Research Interests

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.
