Gwilherm obtained his PhD (2002) at the University of Liverpool under the supervision of Prof. R. Raval studying the production and adsorption of noble metal clusters on Alumina surface. He spent two years at the Max-Planck Institut fűr Mikrostrukturphysik in Halle / Germany as a Research Assistant developing efficient electron detectors for electron time-of-flight (e-TOF) measurements under coincidence conditions. Between 2004 and 2015, Gwilherm then went on working for Omicron and VG Scienta developing and managing various kinds of UHV systems: standard XPS, UPS, TPD, HREELS, Molecular Beam Scattering, ambient pressure XPS. His interests include mainly the investigation and characterisation of materials used in Solid Oxide Fuel Cells using the ambient pressure XPS.

I graduated from Imperial College with an MEng in Materials Science & Engineering in June of 2016. I then joined the Advanced Characterization of Materials Centre for Doctoral Training (ACM CDT) for a PhD working jointly with Prof. Molly Stevens, Dr David Payne at Imperial and Prof. Giuseppe Battaglia at UCL. My project focuses on the fabrication and characterization of porous Silicon nanoneedles for use in direct cellular manipulation. These needles are highly efficient in delivering drugs into cells and my goal is to understand the basic science behind the biointerface between the cell membrane and this inorganic material.
