 Research activity, list of publications

My main research interest is the theoretical study of carbon nanostructures such as carbon nanotubes, fullerenes, and occasionally, graphene. I also have some experience with the surface science of transition metals and recently with silicon nanostructures. You can find a list of my publications here.



 Beyond Science

Outside of science my hobbies include, among other things, writing fiction novels. In 2011 I published a dark fantasy pentalogy entitled Rider of the Black Horse and a collection of short stories entitled Preludes to a Nightmare. If you like dark fantasy and are interested in these books, visit the official website at http://www.rideroftheblackhorse.co.uk

I'm also a dedicated supporter of all things dark humor. I've started a website on Halloween 2011 dedicated to showcasing the very best that dark humor has to offer. The website mostly hosts reviews of dark humor flash games, books, movies, TV shows, or computer games. Feel free to pay a visit at http://www.bearwithadeathlist.co.uk
