Professor Maurice Skolnick obtained his PhD in 1975 from the University of Oxford and then spent two years as a postdoctoral researcher at the Max-Planck-Institute, Grenoble. He then moved to the Royal Signals and Radar Establishment, Malvern in 1978, where he spent the next 13 years, in the last three years as a Senior Principal Scientific Officer (individual merit). In January 1991 he was appointed as Professor of Condensed Matter Physics at the University of Sheffield, where he continues up to the present day.
In addition to leading the Semiconductor Physics group at the University of Sheffield, he is the Research Director of the EPSRC National Centre for III-V Technologies, the UK centre for the fabrication of III-V semiconductor structures. In September 2001 he was awarded an EPSRC Senior Research Fellowship and in January 2002 received the Mott Medal and Prize of the Institute of Physics. He was the Chair of the Semiconductor Commission and a Vice-President of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics from 2002 to 2005. In May 2009 he was elected to a Fellowship of the Royal Society, and in December 2011 was elected as a Foreign Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences. In October 2012, he was awarded a five year ERC Advanced Grant.
His principal research interests include the physics of semiconductor nanostructures, with particular emphasis on quantum dot, photonic structure and polariton physics. In December 2012, he has an h-index of 56 and has published nearly 600 papers with a total of 12000 citations. More details of his research can be found on his group web pages http://ldsd.group.shef.ac.uk.
