Biography

Martin A. Edwards is a research professor at the University of Utah. He received degrees of MMath, MSc (Mathematical Biology and Biophysical Chemistry) and PhD (Development of Electrochemical Probe Microscopy and Related Techniques, supervisors Patrick R. Unwin and Anna L. Whitworth), all from the University of Warwick (UK). Prior to Utah, he performed postdoctoral studies at IBEC, Barcelona (Electrical Scanning Probe Microscopy for Microbiology under Profs Gabriel Gomila and Antonio Suarez) and UNC at Chapel Hill (Development of Electrochemical Techniques for Neuroscience Applications, Prof. R. Mark Wightman). Since joining the University of Utah, he has worked alongside Prof. Henry S. White in the Department of Chemistry. His research interests lie in combining mathematical modeling with physical/analytical techniques to understand and manipulate diverse micro- and nanoscale phenomena. The topics of these investigations vary widely, for energy applications (batteries and fuel cells), nanobubbles and nanoparticles, to biophysical phenomena. A constant thread throughout his research is the development of novel instrumentation and experiments, which frequently involve the development or modification of scanned probe microscopes.
