Prof. Baumberg leads the NanoPhotonics Portfolio Centre at the University of Cambridge. For the past 10 years he directed NanoTechnology at the University of Southampton and was awarded the 2004 Royal Society Mullard Prize, the 2004 Mott Lectureship of the Institute of Physics as well as the Charles Vernon Boys medal in 2000. His research interests are very broad, previously spanning magnetic semiconductors and single semiconductor quantum dots to nanofluidics and surface chemistry, and he acts as an interdisciplinary champion of wider Nano collaborations. Significant industrial experience at Hitachi, as an IBM Fellow, and recently with a spin-off, Mesophotonics, allow him to combine fundamental new science with potential applications, for instance in screening applications within healthcare. He also frequently talks on NanoScience to the media, and is a strategic advisor to the UK Research Councils.
