I am a Professor of Physics in Oxford University, working in the Department of Physics, and based in the Clarendon Laboratory. I am also a Professorial Fellow of Mansfield College, Oxford. I was Head of Condensed Matter Physics from 2008-2011. I came to Oxford in 1993, first as an EPSRC Postdoctoral Fellow. Following a Junior Research Fellowship at Merton College, I was appointed as a University Lecturer in 1997.
My research is concerned with using muon-spin rotation and other magnetic techniques to study a range of organic and inorganic materials, particularly those showing interesting magnetic, superconducting, or dynamical properties. Recently I have been developing a technique called DFT+μ for understanding muon sites and also working on a project to upgrade Oxford's Pulsed Field system to generate high magnetic fields.

I am married to the other Professor Blundell.
