Edward McCann

Edward McCann received his Ph.D. from the University of Birmingham, UK, for theoretical work on mesoscopic fluctuations in disordered conductors. He was a postdoctoral researcher at the Max-Planck-Institut für Physik komplexer Systeme, Dresden, Germany, before moving to Lancaster University, UK, initially as an EPSRC Junior Research Fellow and later as a Lecturer in Condensed Matter Physics. His recent research has focused on the electronic properties of graphene, a single-atom-thick layer of carbon atoms, and of few-layer graphene films.

Due to unusual spinlike properties, electrons in graphene—despite scattering—exhibit a small increase in their conductivity.
