Judith Driscoll is a professor at the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy at University of Cambridge and also a Royal Academy of Engineering Chair in Emerging Technologies. Her group’s research is concerned with the nanoscale design and tuning of functional oxide thin film materials for energy efficient electronic applications. Their particular focus is oxide thin films owing to their wide range of functionalities and their stability. However, their compositions tend to be complex, defects are prevalent, and interface effects play a strong role. Also, for many applications device structural dimensions are required down to nanometre length-scales. Together, all these factors produce exciting challenges for the materials scientist.
