Silicon Wafers and Microcircuits - A wafer is a thin slice of semiconductor material, such as a crystalline silicon, used in electronics for the fabrication of integrated circuits.

Our mission is to explore interdisciplinary research opportunities at the interfaces of nanotechnology, electronics and other disciplines with a particular focus on nanomaterial-based biosensing techniques for disease diagnosis, artificial intelligence and machine learning in big data analysis, biomarker discovery and decision support, signal processing and coding, along with nanomaterials devices for renewable energy and clean water technologies.  

Our research strategically aligns with international and UK funding priorities, in particular the Grand Challenges of Aging Society, Clean Growth and AI/Data-driven Technology.

Staff in the group co-ordinate large UK and EU H2020 research projects (e.g. Sensing for dementia, AiPBAND), and collaborate with major European and international institutions. The group works closely with local industries and with staff at the medical and business schools.
