David N. McIlroy
- B.A. Physics, University of California at Santa Cruz (1984)
- Ph.D. in Physics, University of Rhode Island (1993)
- Phenomena at surfaces, electronic transport, nanomaterials
I am interested in the physical properties of one-dimensional nanostructures, be it interactions with their surface or their electronic transport properties. I also dabble in biophysics with the help of talented biologists.
