Research summary

My research interests are in the theory of electronic structure of solids, with particular emphasis on theories of superconductors and systems with strong electron correlation. This especially includes high temperature superconductors and other unconventional superconductors possessing d-wave or p-wave pairing symmetry. Currents project invovles the study of spin triplet Cooper pairs generated at the interface between an s-wave superconductor and a conical magent, and the study of singlet-triplet mixing in non-centrosymemtric superconducting materials.

I am a Professor in the Theoretical Physics Group in the University of Bristol. I have been in Bristol since 1994. Before that I was Assistant Professor at Pennslyvania State University, and held postdoctoral appointments at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, and was Resarch Fellow at Emmanuel College Cambridge.   I am currently  external examiner in physics at Lancaseter University. Previously held roles include: chair of the Collaborative Computational Project CCP9 for the study of the electronic properties of condensed matter systems, visiting Scientist at STFC Daresbury Laboratory, chair of  the South-West UK branch of the Institute of ...
