Our research focuses on nanoelectrochemistry, developing new nanoscale electrochemical techniques, and using nanoelectrochemistry to understand structure and function in energy conversion and storage materials.
Electrochemical Scanning Probe Microscopy
New techniques which have improved radically the resolution and functionality of electrochemical scanning probe microscopy. Two techniques that we are involved in developing are:
Biological Applications of Nanoscale Electrochemistry
Applying electrochemical techniques to study biological and biophysical systems, including using electrodes to directly detect oxygen produced during photosynthesis, as well as using nanopores to detect single proteins excreted during intracellular signalling.
Simulation and Scientific Programming
Using mathematical simulation and computational modelling to understand the transport of chemical species on the nanoscale, and quantify the electrochemical response of electrochemical sensors.
