Dr. Eric Plum

Project
Active and Switchable Metamaterials, Chirality and Metamaterials

Short CV
Dr. Plum is a Principal Research Fellow leading work on active and switchable metamaterials since 2010. His main research interests lie in the areas of reconfigurable metamaterials and chiral effects in metamaterials. After his undergraduate studies at RWTH Aachen (Germany), University of Southampton (UK) and as a Fulbright Scholar at New Mexico Tech (USA), Dr. Plum joined the metamaterials research group at Southampton's Optoelectronics Research Centre. He is a 2009 Marconi Young Scholar and he was awarded the IOP thesis prize (QEP group) for his PhD thesis on "Chirality and Metamaterials". Thereafter, he has been an Advanced Leverhulme Trust Fellow (2010-2015) and received a Dean's Award in 2015.
