Kevin Critchley started his research career at the University of Leeds. His initial focus was on the photopatterning of self-assembled monolayers on both metal and silicon surfaces in collaboration with Sekio-EPSON, Japan. After completing his Ph.D. degree studies, he continued at Leeds as a Researcher in nanoelectronics. This involved both the fabrication and characterization of nanowires using a four-probe STM. Following this post, he was awarded an EU Marie Curie Outgoing Fellowship, and he chose to work for Professor Kotov at the University of Michigan for two years, working on the self-assembly of nanowires and quantum dots. His current research interests are in the use of quantum dots for medical applications, such as early tumor detection.
