Dr Cooper's PhD thesis was entitled "A Computer Simulation Study of the Interaction of Surfactants with Mineral Surfaces". He spent a year as a postdoctoral fellow at Industrial Research Ltd. in New Zealand, computationally studying self-adsorbed monolayers of long-chain thiols on gold surfaces. He then worked at the University of Cambridge where he was funded by the pharmaceutical industry to investigate the thermodynamic properties of organic molecular solids. Dr Cooper has published 14 articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals and has presented his work at numerous international scientific conferences. His expertise is in the area of computational materials science and he has considerable experience in the computational methods that are used to study solid-state materials. He joined the Edanz group as an editor in 2011.
