My research is in the area of superconductivity, with a special emphasis on direct imaging of superconducting vortices and allied phenomena. Using scanning Hall probe microscopy, we are currently studying the dynamics of vortices in superconducting films that have an artificially structured periodic thickness modulation. We are also investigating phase-slip events in superconducting nanowire, again using imaging techniques to understand the relationship between local phase-slip dynamics and the microstructure of the wires.
