Roddy Vann

Professor Roddy Vann began life as a mathematician at Cambridge University before pursuing a PhD in Theoretical Physics at the University of Warwick. In 2003, he was awarded a three-year EPSRC Postdoctoral Fellowship in Theoretical Physics, after which he moved to York to commence a lectureship. Roddy is now a leading figure in the York Plasma Institute and brings to the TDoTP programme a track record of designing and deploying novel microwave imaging diagnostics, with particular interests in ultra-fast data acquisition and processing. He also has expertise in simulations of microwave interactions with plasmas.
