Dr. Nicole GROBERT ERC Starting Grant 2009 and ERC Proof of Concept Grant 2011; Royal Society University Research Fellow and Professor of Nanomaterials, Department of Materials, University of Oxford


 Nicole Grobert holds a Royal Society University Research Fellowship in the Department of Materials, Oxford University.
 Her research focuses on establishing  growth systematics for the controlled generation of nanostructured materials' with a particular focus on novel carbon and non-carbon based nanomaterials, including nanoparticles, nanotubes, nanorods, graphene and other 2D nanomaterials. Close collaboration with internationally leading industries enables her to develop multifunctional hierarchical nanostructures for their implementation in the health-care sectors and for their use in energy and structural applications.


Nicole holds an invited membership of the New York Academy of Sciences, is a member of the 21st Century's Centre of Excellence Programme on Bioscience and Nanotechnology, and has been a Visiting Professor at Toyo University, Japan since 2003.


Her research is described in more than 140 papers in journals including Nature, Science, Advanced Materials, ACS Nano, Nanoletters, and Physical Review Letters resulting in an h-index of 43 and in 3 patents.


She received the international Pergamon Prize for her thesis on  Novel Carbon Nanostructures'.
