Short Bio
Professor  Kevin M. Ryan obtained his PhD in Chemistry from University College Cork in 2002 in the area of silicon and germanium nanowire synthesis within nanoporous hosts. Following his PhD, he worked as an Enterprise Ireland postdoctoral fellow at UCC before taking up a 2 year Marie Curie Industrial host fellowship at Merck Chemicals Ltd. Southampton in their Nanotechnologies New Business division in 2003. He subsequently carried out a Marie Curie Outgoing fellowship at the University of California, Berkeley in 2005/2006 working on semiconductor nanorod synthesis and superlattice assembly. Currently his lab and group are based at the Bernal Institute, University of Limerick. www.ifnano.com for full group description.
