Biography

Guy joined the MSL Electrical Standards team in 2021. 

As an experiment physicist, Guy is interested in how solid matter behaves at extreme conditions, in particular at very low temperatures and under high magnetic fields. His research interests encompass the study of high-temperature superconductors and the superconductor insulator transition in cuprates, perovskite solar cells, new magnetic materials and exotic new electronic states called skyrmions, which may hold the key to future development in advanced computing systems. This work led him to develop experimental setups such as new dry cryogenic systems, UHV vacuum systems, magnetic annealing systems and to push the limits of DC voltage and resistance measurements.

Before joining MSL, Guy was involved in a market-driven electricity savings program for the Swiss government, worked in business consulting for the insurance and banking industry, and spent 5 years with the Robinson Research Institute of Victoria University of Wellington.
