Amy Walker

Professor, ECE


University of Cambridge, Cambridge, United Kingdom Ph.D. in Chemistry, December 1998 Thesis: “The catalytic oxidation of methane on Pt {110}(1x2)”. Advisor: Prof. D.A. King University of Cambridge, Cambridge, United Kingdom B.A. Honors Natural Sciences (Physics and Theoretical Physics), June 1995


The ultimate goal of Amy Walker’s research is the development of simple, robust materials for constructing complex two- and three-dimensional surfaces by manipulating interfacial chemistry. Metal/SAM, semiconductor/SAM and biomolecule/SAM structures have applications in organic electronics, sensing, catalysis, photovoltaics and optoelectronics. Her group also develops analytical techniques to probe the structures produced.
