Dr Ross Gray

Research Fellow

Physics

Personal statement

Ross Gray received his PhD from the University of Strathclyde in 2013, he continued at Strathclyde through his post-doctoral research from 2013-2016 and now holds a research fellowship in laser-plasma interactions. His research covers a range of topics in intense laser-matter interactions including laser-driven ion acceleration, relativistic plasma photonics and high field laser-matter interactions
