Professor Michael Brunger has experimental research interests in positron and electron scattering from a range of molecular species and radicals that are of medical, technological and atmospheric importance. With colleague Dr Laurence Campbell, he has also developed a modelling faculty that enables the role of electron-driven processes in our atmosphere and that of other planets to be simulated.
