Prof. Michael Morris is a graduate of Liverpool University in 1982 (BSc and PhD). He was a post-doctoral fellow at Imperial College in London before moving to Strathclyde University as a lecturer. He then took an ICI endowed lectureship at Cardiff University for research into surface science and catalysis, which was followed by a move to ICI as a research scientist. He was appointed to a post in Materials Chemistry at UCC in 1993 and while there held the Chair of Inorganic Chemistry and was Head of the Department of Chemistry at the university. In 2015, he was appointed Academic Director of AMBER and Professor of Surface and Interface Engineering at the School of Chemistry, Trinity College Dublin. Prof. Morris’s work largely focuses on self-assembly of materials in thin films. This has been geared towards production of mesoporous films and recently block-polymer microphase separation to form periodic arrangements. These periodic structures can be used to engineer surfaces for applications such as circuit elements in integrated circuitry, manipulation of light, self-cleaning surfaces and antimicrobial packaging.

Prof. Morris’s work in AMBER includes collaboration with Intel on the development of new technology for the manufacture of logic/memory circuitry. He also has several engagements with other companies based on his experience of surface engineering and materials science, e.g. DePuy (surface coatings for implant components) and Merck Millipore (new membrane materials) and also collaborates with Henkel, Alcatel Lucent and other companies. Prof Morris is a founder of Glantreo, a SME spin out for Cork, and maintains links in developing novel stationary phase materials for chromatography applications.
