Dr Andrew Scott (AJS) has extensive experience of a wide range of theoretical (ab-initio materials modelling, crystallography) and experimental (advanced electron microscopy, XRD) techniques, acquired in both academia (Leeds, Newcastle, Brunel) and industry (BP Research).
A key focus of his research is the application of electronic structure methods to understand and predict materials properties.
Current research areas: Functional materials, nuclear graphite, electron energy loss spectroscopy, crystallisation
Research methods: density functional theory, electron microscopy, light microscopy<h4>Research projects</h4> <p>Any research projects I'm currently working on will be listed below.
