Andrew Princep, Keeley-Rutherford Junior Research Fellow in Physics
Dr Andrew Princep is the Keeley-Rutherford Junior Research Fellow in Physics.
He received his PhD in Physics in 2012 from the Australian Defence Force Academy, where he studied the behaviour of rare-earth elements using x-rays. Subsequently, he has spent 5 years as a postdoctoral researcher at Oxford University with Professors Andrew Boothroyd and Paolo Radaelli. He has also held a post as a Visiting Scientist at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin working with Professor Bella Lake.
Andrew has contributed to a diverse range of experimental physics research using neutron and x-ray scattering to explore emergent electronic and magnetic phenomena in crystalline materials. In his spare time he enjoys boardgames, horror movies, and power-lifting.
