Current Group Members

Moon Kang

Moon is currently a Ph.D. candidate in electrical engineering at the University of Cambridge. His research focuses on realising chemical vapour deposited graphene-based transparent flexible electronics. Before joining the Electronic Devices and Materials group, Moon worked at Silicon Display Co. Ltd designing and developing new types of image sensors, fingerprint scanners, X-ray detectors, and highly efficient OLED and TFT drivers for AMOLED displays. Mr. Kang received B.S. in physics from Dong-a University, Busan, South Korea in 2003 and M.S. degree in Information Display from Kyung Hee University, Seoul, South Korea in 2007. Moon is a member of Darwin College.


Clare Collins

Clare was awarded the Stuart Barber Bursary to study Physics (MSci) at King's College London. She spent her fourth year project working at the National Physics Laboratory in Teddington. She then came to Cambridge, gaining an MRes in Ultra Precision and is currently studying for a Ph.D. in the Electronic Devices and Materials group. She is a member of Hughes Hall. Clare’s work focuses on elucidating the field emission dependence on nanoscale device morphology and how this pertains to novel X-ray sources. In her spare time, Clare rows for her college, as well as being the MCR Vice President (2013-2014). She was awarded the President's Award in her final year at King's College London, for her contribution to the Dance Society.


Richard Parmee

Richard is an engineer and serial entrepreneur in the fields of image processing, automatic X-ray inspection and electronic gauging. He has worked extensively in the fields of precision measurement, statistical quality control and end-of-line inspection. He has supplied equipment to many of the largest companies in the world. Richard is the chairman of the Cheyney group of companies; an international group engaged in developing and implementing X-ray applications for the food and pharmaceutical industries. He is a graduate of University of Cambridge, in Electrical Sciences. He holds the William Pitt Fellowship at Pembroke College, Cambridge University. He is a mentor and angel investor in start-up companies and is a board member of the Cambridge Angels. Richard is a member of Pembroke College and is currently undertaking a Ph.D. in the Electronics Devices and Materials group developing the next-generation of nanocarbon enhanced X-ray sources with a particular focus on high-speed pulsed operation and micro-focal beam lines.
