Dr Leigh Jarvis

 Leigh Jarvis 
After completing an Electronic Engineering Degree, Dr Jarvis focused his research on the field of superconductivity in the physics department at the University of Natal. The beauty of this quantum mechanical phenomenon and its contribution to the development of modern materials science was a perfect fit to his interest in engineering and physics.

Another more recent focus is nano-technology. He has a patent for a unique fabrication technique in producing nano-carbon material and is currently fabricating graphene (a plane of carbon atoms one atom thick) for fuel cells and supercapacitors applications.

He regards the best place to be on campus is with his postgraduates in his laboratory.
