I came in 19 years ago, and what a community to be in. Microscopy has been terrific, it’s been a big wave and I think we surf the wave really successfully, following it and looking at oppurtunities.


Peter’s research is now focussed on both technology and method development. Peter is a PI on multiple funded grants, including current funding from the RCUK Next Generation Optical Microscopy (NGOM) Call in collaboration with the CRUK-LRI, JEOL and Delmic and KTP/EPSRC funding in collaboration with Phase Focus and BBSRC/JEOL CASE Award to develop a novel CLEM system.
