Dr. Anna Baldycheva received the B.Sc. degree with Honors from Physics Faculty at St. Petersburg State University. In 2008, she was awarded prestigious research fellowship from ICGEE (Irish Research Council) to pursue the Ph.D. research project in Nano- and Micro Si Photonics at University of Dublin, Trinity College. During her PhD she was already leading an independant research project at Tyndall National Institute as a principal investigator of the research grant funded by Science Foundation Ireland. After completion of her PhD in 2012, she joined RLE and MTL at MIT as a Post-Doc with Prof Mike Watts. In November 2014 she moved to UK to take on a position as an assistant professor at University of Exeter.
Since 2009 Dr. Baldycheva has published over 50 peer-reviewed papers and conference proceedings. She is a frequent reviewer for high-ranking optical journals Optics Express, Optics Express Materials, Optics Letters, Optics Materials, Applied Optics, IEEE Lightwave Technology Journal, and IEEE Photonics Technology Letters. She is also a member of SPIE, Women in Optics, Optical Society of America (OSA), European Microscopy Society (EMS), Royal Microsopy Society (RMS) and Microscopy Society of Ireland (MSI). Prof Baldycheva is an associate editor of the Nature Scientific Reports and is serving on board of the Royal Microscopy Society Engineering Section.
Having completed her thesis in 2005, she worked for TeraView Ltd as a Medical Scientist until moving to Hong Kong in 2006. Prof MacPherson set up a terahertz laboratory at the Department of Electronic Engineering, CUHK during her post between 2006 and 2009 as an Assistant Professor. She spent 3 years at HKUST as a Visiting Assistant Professor (September 2009 -2012) and returned to the Department of Electronic Engineering, CUHK in Sept 2012. Prof MacPherson has represented Hong Kong on the International Organising Committee for the Infrared and Millimeter Wave and Terahertz Wave (IRMMW-THz) conference series since 2009 and she was the General Conference Chair of the 2015 IRMMW-THz conference held at CUHK. She recently joined the Physics department at Warwick University, UK and is the recipient of a Royal Society Wolfson Merit Award.
Her academic work spans from applied research in nanotechnology, electronic and optoelectronic devices to fundamental research in nanoscience (quantum phenomena, molecular electronics, nano electronics, spintronics) and materials science. She has over 100 publications in leading international journals (e.g. Nature & Science family journals, Advanced Materials, Nano Letters), with many papers ranked in the top 1% in Materials Science, Engineering and Physics, which have attracted an h-index of 27. Prof Craciun leads a group of 30 researchers currently focusing on two-dimensional materials with the aim of harnessing their novel properties for scopes as broad as electronics, photonics, energy and sensing.
Previously a Visiting Researcher at Exeter, Dr Ana Neves joined the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences in October 2014 as an Associate Research Fellow under the project ``Wearable light emitting transistors for future communication devices`` working on graphene for flexible and wearable applications.
Since October 2016 she is a Lecturer in Engineering. She has previously been on research-only duties related to her Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship with project E-TEX ``All-organic devices in textiles for wearable electronics``. Ana currently teaches in the Engineering and Natural Sciences programmes. She is also a member of the Nano-Engineering, Science and Technology Group (NEST).
Dr Ana Neves research interests include fabrication and processing of organic and molecular materials, graphene and 2D materials for applications in flexible and wearable electronics, including sensing and communication devices.
Current research topics include; (i) surface modification of polymers using liquid crystals as imprinting media, (ii) liquid crystals for beam steering applications, (iii) fabrication of novel colloidal particles and soft matter topology, (iv) aggregation induced emission, (v) liquid crystals of novel architechtures and exotic mesophases. I use experimental techniques including optical and fluorescent microscopy, super-reolution microscopy such as SIM, STED and STORM.``
