His research area is in understanding the behaviour of electrons in nanostructures. Predicting the behaviour of electrons using quantum mechanics theory, to compare with experimental data. Current funded project topics include:

  • Quantum de-coherence and computation in condensed-phase systems
  • Electrons in atomic-scale quantum wires
  • Formation of molecules on interstellar dust grains
  • Theory of scanning tunnelling microscopy in liquids
  • Development of techniques to study coherent inelastic transport
  • Organic molecules on semiconductor surfaces
  • Awards

  • Maxwell Medal and Prize, Institute of Physics, 1998
  • Career

    Fisher has been lecturing at UCL since October 1995. Previously he lectured at Durham University (1993–1995).

    He was a Junior Research Fellow at St John's College Oxford, working in the Clarendon Laboratory of the Oxford Physics Department (1989–1993). During this period he spent a year at the IBM Zurich Research Laboratory (1991–1992).
