I am interested in how we may tailor phase transitions in so-called "functional" materials for either the efficient use of energy, such as in refrigeration, or its efficient conversion, such as in power generation. Most of my studies to-date have involved magnetic phase transitions, requiring an understanding of the relationship between structure and function at all length-scales and a holistic research approach that combines experimental and theoretical tools.
I currently coordinate the "DRREAM" grant on magnetic cooling, funded by the European Commission under Framework Programme 7 and have been a faculty member at Imperial College London for the 5 years prior to joining Brooklyn College in 2014. I was a Royal Society University Research Fellow from 2005 to 2013, initially at the University of Cambridge and latterly at Imperial College. I was also a Director of Studies in Physics at Churchill College, Cambridge from 2004-2009.
