University College Dublin
Working as professor at University college of Dublin, Ireland in Chemistry Department. Completed PhD in Chemistry Gareth Redmond received his B.Sc. degree in Chemistry from UCD in 1991 and his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry in 1995, also from UCD. His PhD research was concerned with understanding the electronic and optical properties of semiconductor nanocrystals as applied to DSSCs. During a postdoctoral fellowship at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in 1995 he developed an early electrode position route to spin tunnel junctions in ferromagnetic nanowires. After a postdoctoral fellowship in University of Bath in 1996 on the properties of nanocrystalling materials he joined the Tyndall National Insitute in University College Cork in 1997 as a research scientist and was appointed Group Director, Nanotechnology in 1999. He also served as a member of the Tyndall Institute executive management team between 1999 and 2004.
The activities of Gareth's research group currently include microscopy and spectroscopy of nanostructures, application of molecular self-assembly to the fabrication of nanoscale information processing and biotechnology devices, and development of low cost nanostructure fabrication methods.
