Visiting Fellow working with Rudo Roemer
I am a visiting fellow in Astronomy & Astrophysics group in the Department of Physics, working with Prof. T.R.Marsh. My research interests are accretion in, and the evolution of close binary stars, in particular cataclysmic variables.
Prof Bianchi Mendez
Bianchi Mendez has joined the Microscopy Group as Visiting Academic. She is Professor in Materials Science at Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain), where she works at the Physics of Electronic Nanomaterials Group. Her research focuses on the study of optical and electronic properties of electronic nanomaterials, with a particular attention to their relationship with their structural features. During the last ten years, her main attention has been the study of nanostructures based on semiconducting oxide materials, such as nanowires or nanobelts, with the aim to exploit their featured physical properties for future applications in sensor and energy devices.
