Nicholas Bristowe’s group investigates structure-property relations in perovskites and related functional materials. He recently joined Durham University, his alma mater, as an Assistant Professor in Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics. His interest in oxide perovskites began during his PhD on the LaAlO3-SrTiO3 interface at the University of Cambridge. He was later awarded a research fellowship from the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851, and subsequently an Imperial College Research Fellowship, to primarily study multiferroic materials. In 2017 he obtained a Lectureship at the University of Kent, before moving to Durham in 2020, and remains an honorary lecturer at Imperial.
