I am interested in the physics of semiconductor materials and devices and particularly in those properties relevant for the integration of different materials and different functions. I am currently Director of the EPSRC Future Compound Semiconductor Manufacturing Hub, which focuses on the manufacturing processes for the materials and devices that drive much of the technology that underpins our lives. I collaborate extensively within Cardiff University, with other leading universities worldwide and with UK based industry to develop solutions for the next generations of semiconductor based technology that underpins our connected world.

I am currently module organiser for PXT303 Compound Semiconductor Application Specific Photonic Integrated Circuits
I also supervise 3rd and 4th year projects.

Other recent modules include:
PX3243 "Laser Physics and Non-linear Optics"

PX3144 "Electromagnetic Radiation Detection".

PX2107 "Electronics and Instrumentation" PX2108 "Topics in Physics"
PX3226 "Physics of Semiconductor Devices"
PX1217 "Investigative Physics II" and
PX0202 "Electricity, Magnetism and Light

Interests include the design, fabrication and characterisation of optoelectronic devices. Current research topics include quantum dot lasers , high power emitters for photodynamic therapy and the physics of InGaN light emitting devices. I am also interested in optoelectronic integration of materials and functions. This involves the exploration of the physics of the light matter interactions in these materials and devices.
