New academics to enhance functional materials research

Dr Eddie Cussen and Professor Serena CorrWe are thrilled to welcome Professor Serena Corr and Dr Eddie Cussen, who have joined the Department to further expand our expertise in functional materials. Professor Corr and Dr Cussen are working in jointly Materials Science and Engineering and Chemical and Biological Engineering.

Professor Corr's research focuses on the design, synthesis and characterisation of functional nanomaterials whose applications include insertion electrodes for energy storage, biomedical diagnostics and therapeutics and electronically responsive materials.

Dr Cussen's research examines the structural and bonding arrangements that underpin a diverse range of properties of complex crystalline solids.
