Dr Angela Dyson

Senior Lecturer in Physics

Background

Introduction

I am Degree Programme Director for Physics. I did my BSc in Theoretical Physics at Essex University where I stayed on for my PhD in Laser plasma interactions via computer simulation. I moved into semiconductor physics in 2000 working with Profs Naci Balkan & Mike Adams and since 2004 I have collaborated with Prof Brian Ridley FRS.

I am a member of the Institute of Physics.

Previous Positions

2016-2017 Reader and Head of Physics & Astrophysics, Hull University

2013-2016 Senior Lecturer, Hull University

2008-2013 Lecturer, Hull University

Research

My broad research area is semiconductors and devices with a particular emphasis on phonons and high field transport. I have an in-house developed bulk Monte-Carlo transport simulation code which includes non-equilibrium phonons. I've been interested in Gallium Nitride since 2005 for high frequency emission e.g. THz. 

Research Grants

I am currently funded by the Office of Naval research sponsored by Dr Paul Maki under grant No N00141512193 "Theory of transport in Semiconductors"
