2007 - PhD Physical Chemistry, University of Bristol
2002 - MPhys Physics, University of Edinburgh
Dr Roberts’ PhD research focused on measuring effective charges in nonaqueous colloidal systems using optical tweezers in combination with an electrophoretic cell. After completing his PhD, he worked for 2 years as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology in the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. His research used tunable nanopores to detect the biomodification of nanoparticles, aiming to develop a simple, easily applied bioassay technique. Dr Roberts then worked as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Materials Science Research Centre at Chiang Mai University, Thailand, focusing on the area of nanotechnology and the creation of stronger carbon nanotube networks. He now works in the intellectual property field. Dr Roberts joined the Edanz Group as an editor in 2011.
