Conway joined NPL in 1984. While at NPL he studied part-time for a BSc degree in physics from the Polytechnic of the South Bank and an MSc and DPhil from the University of Sussex.
Conway has worked on the development of cryogenic and ultra-high vacuum environments for metrological applications such as cryogenic dielectric resonators and variable temperature scanning tunnelling microscopes. He also has considerable experience of developing computerised measurement and control systems for complex experiments.
Conway is currently working on the support and development of the UK’s national time scale and providing scientific support for the NPLTime® service.
