Dr James Storey is a Scientist at the Robinson Research Institute (VUW) based at Callaghan Innovation, Lower Hutt. James completed his PhD in Physics at VUW in 2007 on the electronic structure and thermodynamic properties of high-temperature superconductors (HTS). In 2008 he moved to the U.K. to undertake postdoctoral research in the Quantum Matter Group at the University of Cambridge, specialising in high-resolution differential electronic specific heat measurements on the then newly-discovered iron-based HTS. He returned to N.Z. in 2011 as a MacDiarmid Institute post-doc before accepting his present position in 2014.

Research Interests

James has dedicated his research career towards pursuing a fundamental understanding of high-temperature superconductors in terms of their electronic structures, through the measurement and computational modelling of their thermodynamic and transport properties. More recently he has also been developing software for analysing scanning electron microscope images, and performing finite-element modelling of superconducting rotating machines.
