Dr Finlay Morrison

Reader in Solid-State Chemistry

Biography: Finlay Morrison was educated at the University of Aberdeen where he received his B.Sc (Chemistry), M.Sc. (New Materials) followed by a PhD in solid-state chemistry (1999). Finlay then held PDRA positions in the Engineering Materials Department, University of Sheffield (1999-2001) and the Earth Sciences Department, University of Cambridge (2001-2004). Finlay was awarded a Royal Society University Research Fellowship (2004-2012) which he initially held at the University of Cambridge before joining the School of Chemistry at St Andrews in 2006. He was promoted to Reader in 2012. Finlay’s general research interest lies in the solid state-chemistry of functional oxides with focus on investigation of new materials (particularly dielectrics, ferroelectrics and multiferroics) for electronic applications.
