Professor Adrian Sutton FRS
Adrian Sutton is a materials physicist who applies fundamental physics to understand and predict the structure and properties of materials of technological significance. His interests are at the interface between condensed matter physics and materials science. His work involves theory spanning classical and quantum mechanics, elastic field theory of defects and their interactions in solids, transport of atoms, electrons and heat in solids, thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, electronic structure and interatomic forces. He is the chairman of the Centre for Doctoral Training on Theory and Simulation of Materials.
