Christopher Bell, Stanford University, USA
Title: Exploring low dimensional transport in SrTiO3-based heterostructures
Christopher Bell completed his Ph.D. at Cambridge University in 2004, and continued there in a Post-Doctoral position for one year, before moving to the University of Leiden for two years. He was a Canon Foundation in Europe Fellow at The University of Tokyo, from 2007 to 2008, then a Post-Doctoral researcher until 2010, when he became a Research Assistant Professor. From May 2011 he has been an Associate Staff Scientist at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, Stanford University. He has research interests ranging from the physics of low dimensional transport, including superconductivity, magnetism and novel proximity effects, to the materials science and chemistry of interfaces and surfaces.
