Biography

Roger has made a massive contribution to Oxide Semiconductor research within the Institute. This research area provides key enabling technologies for next generation solar cells, new environmental/health-related sensors, carbon capture and water purification catalysts, and UV detectors for primary skin cancer prevention.

Roger's world-leading expertise in the growth and optical characterisation of wide band-gap semiconductors has been critical in attracting world-leading international collaborators and significantly raising the profile of the Institute overseas.

We need to protect our ideas for New Zealand's economic benefit.
