Dr Justin Hodgkiss

I am a senior lecturer in Physical Chemistry at Victoria University of Wellington, a deputy director of the MacDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology, an Associate Investigator in the Dodds-Wall Centre for Photonic and Quantum Technologies, and a Rutherford Discovery Fellow.

I completed my BSc (Hons) in chemistry at the University of Otago in 2000, and my PhD as a Fulbright Scholar at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2006. Following my PhD, I carried out post-doctoral research in the Cavendish Laboratory at the University of Cambridge. I joined Victoria University in 2009.
