Please get in touch with Professor Alastair Hibbins or Dr Anja Roeding via or 01392 724132.


Are you working in metamaterials or a related area and wondering whether joint supervision of a PhD project could be beneficial for research progress?

Are you interested in PhD student exchange to provide the next generation with insights in other HE institutions and support their training?

Would you like to give a guest lecture at the University of Exeter or host one of our academics to provide a guest lecture at your institution?

If you'd like to establish or strengthen a collaboration, please get in touch with Dr Anja Roeding via or 01392 724132 – or contact the academic who works in your area of interest directly: find their details on our research theme pages.


Our postgraduate researchers engage pro-actively with the wider public through outreach and public engagement activities at schools and science fairs and by using media to make higher education more accessible.
