Dr. Heike Arnolds leads the Nonlinear Optics Lab at the University of Liverpool. After an MSc on high-temperature superconductors in Oxford and her doctorate on Fourier Transform NMR on surfaces at the Department of Physics, Phillips-Universität Marburg, she started research in ultrafast surface dynamics and sum frequency spectroscopy as a postdoc at the Department of Chemistry, University of Cambridge. She gained an EPSRC Advanced Research Fellowship to work on plasmon-enhanced photochemistry before moving to the University of Liverpool as lecturer in the Department of Chemistry.Research expertise
