Dr Richard Morton

Associate Professor

Department: Mathematics, Physics and Electrical Engineering

Richard _mortonI graduated from the University of Sheffield in 2008 with a MPHYS Mathematics and Physics degree. I remained at Sheffield to complete my PhD in Applied Mathematics/Solar Physics, and accepted a position as a research scientist there. In 2012 I was appointed as Anniversary Research Fellow in the Department of Mathematics, Physics and Electrical Engineering at Northumbria University. In June 2014 I was awarded a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship to continue my research.
