Christiane runs nanotechnology Continuing Professional Development courses for the University including an online Postgraduate Certificate course, Summer Schools and short courses, based at Begbroke. She also coordinates an annual schools programme which features outreach activities for teachers and Key Stage 3 and 4 pupils.  She received her DPhil in Materials Science from the University of Oxford in 1998 and continued with post-doctoral research. In 2001, Christiane was awarded the Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship for her work on the growth and characterisation of nanostructures on semiconductor surfaces. After a period as a lecturer at the Multidisciplinary Nanotechnology Centre at Swansea University, Christiane returned to Oxford in 2007 to take up her present post.  Her research interests and expertise are in the areas of surface science, growth and characterisation of nanostructures on surfaces, and nanotechnology in general. Christiane also teaches nanoscience and materials science at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
