Cristina Giusca

Cristina Giusca received her BSc and MSc degrees in physics from the University of Bucharest in 1997 and 1999 respectively, after which she worked for two years as a research assistant in the National Institute for Physics of Materials, Romania. She completed her PhD at the University of Surrey in 2006 and then stayed on as a research fellow at Surrey's Advanced Technology Institute until 2011. Work at Surrey concentrated on probing the electronic properties of carbon-based materials using scanning tunnelling microscopy and photoemission spectroscopy techniques. Since October 2012, she has worked in the Quantum Detection Group at NPL as a Higher Research Scientist.

Current interests

Current research uses scanning probe microscopy and Raman spectroscopy techniques to explore the structural and electronic behaviour of graphene and other 2D materials when exposed to various environments.
