The people

We work collaboratively, as a multi-disciplinary team of specialists, on graphene and 2D material research. The University has more than 230 researchers working on graphene and related 2D materials. We pride ourselves on taking a concerted, creative approach to tackling the scientific unknowns of these remarkable materials.
