External positions held: 

Outside of UCL I am the immediate past-chairman of the British Vacuum Council, and sit on the IOP’s Semiconductor Physics Group committee. I am on the organising and/or programme committees of most of the international diamond conferences/meetings, and am co-chairing symposia on ‘Diamond Electronics’ at the MRS Fall 2006 and 2007 meetings in the USA.


Within UCL I act as the Undergraduate Admissions Tutor for the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, where I also teach Device Physics and Technology to BEng and MEng students. At MSc level, I teach ‘Nanoscale Processing and Characterisation’ and ‘Nano-electronic devices’ to students on UCL’s programme in ‘Nanotechnology’.
