About the Author

Andrew Collins gained his PhD in inorganic materials chemistry in 2005 at The Centre for Organized Matter Chemistry. Since then he has continued to work in the multidisciplinary field of nanoscience at the University of Bristol. Andrew runs the scanning probe microscopy unit within the School of Chemistry focussing on the development and characterisation of novel functional nanometerials and self assembled biomaterials.Additionally, he lectures in Nanotoxicology and Bionanomaterials at the Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials and has worked as consultant to industry, education and television.
