Professor Rebecca Cheung FRSE

Chair of Nanoelectronics and Head of Institute for Integrated Micro and Nano Systems, University of Edinburgh.

Professor Rebecca Cheung has an international reputation for her high-quality research in the development and application of micro and nanofabrication. Her early scientific contributions include the development of damage-free nanostructures applied to ultra-fast transistors and low-dimensional devices. Equipped with her knowledge in micro and nanofabrication, she collaborates with other scientists and engineers to develop nanomaterials for nanodevices, as well as to design and fabricate three-dimensional micro-scale structures, for a wide range of applications including sensors, actuators, timing devices and biomimetical systems.
