Prof. Susie Speller

Susie Speller is a Professor of Materials Science at the University of Oxford, where she has spent over 20 years researching superconducting materials. 

She originally worked on high temperature cuprate superconducting thin films for microwave device applications, but has subsequently worked on coated conductors, iron-based superconductors, low temperature superconductors and MgB2

Recent work has included the development of superconducting joints for MRI and NMR applications, bulk superconductors for compact magnet applications and radiation damage of coated conductors for fusion magnets. 

Her research focusses on understanding the links between microstructure and properties, and she specialises in using advanced characterisation techniques such as analytic electron microscopy and x-ray spectroscopy. Susie is currently Letters Editor of Superconductor Science and Technology
