Research Interests:

My primary research interest is in the use of scanning and transmission electron microscopy for the characterization and inter-relation of the physical, electronic and optical properties of semiconductor nanostructures.  In addition, I am actively involved in multidisciplinary collaborations with several other researchers at Acadia University.  These research projects are usually motiviated by students wishing to study at the interface between two science displiciplines, say, geology and physics.  This gives students the benefits of learning techniques from two fields with the added bonus of being jolly good fun!  Please click here to go to my research page.
