Short Bio

Dr Thompson’s group design novel architectures and assemblies based on the directed self-assembly of nanoscale building blocks (small molecules, biomolecules, monolayers, and nanoparticles) in collaboration with leading experimental and industry partners in European Framework, Science Foundation Ireland and Enterprise Ireland funded projects. Thermodynamic modelling of assemblies from the atomic to micron scale is performed using workstations at the Bernal Institute UL, the Irish Centre for High End Computing and supercomputing centers throughout mainland Europe. He has graduated four PhD students and supervised eight postdoctoral researchers, and currently supervises three PhD students and three postdoctoral researchers.
