After three years of fellowships at University of Glasgow and University of Munich by the Royal Society and Alexander von Humboldt foundation, he worked at the Nanometre Consortium, Lund University as a Guest Lecturer before moving to Manchester as a Lecturer in 2002. He became Professor of Nanoelectronics in 2006. His research is focused on novel nanoelectronic devices and thin-film electronics. His work has led to awards including "Researcher of the Year" Distinguished Achievement Medal of the University of Manchester, Royal Society Brian Mercer Feasibility Award, and a number of best conference paper awards. The potential of practical applications of the nanodevices for printable electronics and energy harvesting have motivated a number of commercialization activities including 15 patents/patent applications and a spin-out company.
