Dr Michael Faulkner

Biography

I'm an EPSRC postdoctoral research fellow in the Physics Theory Group and a visiting scientist at Ecole normale supérieure in Paris. Previously, I was a doctoral researcher at both University College London and Ecole normale supérieure de Lyon, under the co-supervision of Steve Bramwell and Peter Holdsworth. After a short postdoc and a teaching position in the School of Mathematics at Bristol, I then moved to the School of Physics to start my EPSRC fellowship in August 2017.

I'm also an ambassador for STEM Learning: I teach coding to young people from disadvantaged backgrounds through Digilocal HBB, and act as a mentor for the Social Mobility Foundation. I also helped Digilocal HBB to forge a long-term partnership with Bristol.
