Title: Emergent quantum-size effects at topological insulator surfaces

Phil King received a MPhys degree in physics from the University of Oxford, UK, in 2005, and a Ph.D. in condensed matter physics from the University of Warwick, UK, in 2009, for which he was awarded the Roy prize of the Institute of Physics. He was a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of St Andrews, UK, from 2009 until 2012. In April 2012, he took up a Kavli postdoctoral research fellowship at Cornell University, USA. His research is primarily focused on the electronic structure of novel quantum materials such as correlated oxides and topological insulators.
