Biography

Chris Groves completed his BEng and PhD degrees in Electronic Engineering and Solid-State Physics respectively at Sheffield University. He subsequently undertook postdoctoral research possitions at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge University and the University of Washington in Seattle prior to joining Durham University in 2009. He is currently Director the Centre for Molecular and Nanoscale Electronics at Durham, as well as member of the Durham Energy Institute.

Research

Dr Groves' research centres on the exploitation of new materials for energy generation and unconventional computing. This involves the development of simulation models to link the stucture of organic materials to the performance of devices, new experimental techniques such as 1/f noise spectroscopy, and engineering better performance via additive manufacture. He has published more than 40 papers, book chapters, and review articles that have been cited more than 2000 times. He is Institution Director for the North East Centre for Energy Materials and the EPSRC Centre for Renewable Energy Northeast Universities (ReNU), as well as an Editor for the Springer Nature Journal, Journal of Materials Science: Materials in Electronics.
