Job Title

Senior Lecturer, Physics


My area of research interest is experimental condensed matter physics, with a particular focus on growing thin films of novel materials and determining their structural and electronic properties. This work involves collaboration with numerous students, postdocs, and academics at VUW and the MacDiarmid Institute, and at other institutions in New Zealand and around the world. My current research projects include disordered gallium nitride thin films, dilute magnetic semiconductors and rare-earth nitrides.
