Andrew Edwards is a Research Fellow in Physics in the School of Science and Technology. He is currently employed on the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council grant: Dynamic Dewetting: Designing and Breaking Novel Morphologies of Liquid Films (EP/R042276/1) exploring how dielectrowetting can be used to shape thin liquid films to study wetting and dewetting effects.
Alongside his research role Andrew is involved in the teaching of the undergraduate module Digital Techniques and the postgraduate module Current Topics in Physics. He also offers research projects on the Physics Undergraduate Research Scholarship (PURS) and Nuffield Foundation Future Researchers (NFR) schemes.
04/2017 – Now: Nottingham Trent University, Research Fellow in Physics.
09/2013 – 12/2017: Nottingham Trent University, Ph. D. in Physics.
09/2010 – 07/2013: Nottingham Trent University, B. Sc. (Hons) Physics.
Dr Edwards is a member of the Soft Matter, Organisation, Fluids & Transport (SOFT) group at NTU.
