Alex Robinson is a Senior Research Fellow of the Science City Research Alliance (SCRA) formed in 2009 between the Universities of Birmingham and Warwick and is based in the School of Chemical Engineering at the University of Birmingham, with a visiting position in the School of Chemistry at the University of Warwick. Prior to joining SCRA, he led the microfabrication group of the Nanoscale Physics Research Laboratory of the University of Birmingham. His Ph.D. degree was in physics from the University of Birmingham, UK. His primary research is in the development of molecular photoresist materials for electron beam lithography and extreme ultraviolet lithography. In addition to working on resist development, Robinson is interested in the microfabrication of novel structures and devices, research into materials whose conductivity or mechanical properties can be altered by electron beam irradiation, high aspect ratio ICP etching of nanostructures, and the production of coaxially shielded electron field emission devices, as well as being involved in the study of the preparation and patterning of silane and thiol self-assembled monolayers.
