The group

Fabien Massabuau

Fabien did his PhD at the University of Cambridge on the effect of nanostructure of InGaN/GaN quantum wells on the properties of LEDs under the awesome Rachel Oliver’s supervision. He went on with a postdoc in Cambridge to develop a multi-microscopy methodology to study the properties of the same nanoscale features in III-Nitrides under different microscopes. Fabien joined the University of Strathclyde in 2019 as a Chancellor’s Fellow where he leads his group on Ga2O3 semiconductors for UV optoelectronics applications.
When he is not in the lab, Fabien can probably be found near a cheese platter and/or saying “Don’t be sad” to literally everyone.

David Nicol

David did his BSc in Physics at the University of Strathclyde. After a BSc project where he conducted electrical measurements to understand the bewildering awesomeness of Ga2O3-metal contacts, he decided he liked it and went on doing a wee PhD with us to study defects and their effects on Ga2O3 materials and devices.
When he is not in the lab, David can be found at the golf course, or in a nearby chippy saying words like “outwith” or “toty”.

Megan McLelland

Megan is currently in her 4th year of MPhys Physics degree at Strathclyde. She is studying the sheer badassery of luminescence properties of alpha-Ga2O3.
When not studying, Megan enjoys shopping and heading to the gym. But her favourite pastime is sipping cocktails with Gemma.

Gemma Dallas

Gemma is in her 4th year of her MPhys Physics degree at Strathclyde and is investigating the photoconductivity of Ga2O3 and almost equally badass semiconductors for her 4th year project.
When not studying or in uni, Gemma can be found cooking up a storm (and making a mess) in the kitchen for her food page on Instagram, binge watching the Big Bang theory or sipping cocktails with Megan.

Ewan Nicolson (past member)

Ewan did a BSc in Physics at the University of Strathclyde. He briefly joined the GOOD group for his BSc project where he conducted good photoluminescence study of Ga2O3 films.
He said he liked the project and group (who doesn’t?) but not enough to stay with us. Instead he went on doing a PhD in robotics.
