My name is Peter Eaton, and I have been working with Atomic Force Microscopy for more than 15 years. I am currently an Investigador Auxiliar (Auxiliary researcher) at UCIBIO in the University of Porto, Portugal. I am the co-author (with Paul West of AFMWorkshop) of Atomic Force Microscopy, published in 2010 by Oxford University Press. I have collaborated with researchers in the UK, France, Spain, Portugal, the USA and Germany. I have taught AFM around the globe, and am coordinator of the Porto AFM Training Workshop (running from 2011 onwards).

In addition to development of research and education in Atomic Force Microscopy, my interests include:

Antimicrobial peptide derived from amphibians

  • Nano particle preparation and characterisation
  • Natural Products
  • Biosensors
  • Scanning electron microscopy

A complete list of my research papers can be found here. I have co-authored more than 60 scientific works total.

I am happy to collaborate scientifically in interesting projects or carry out scientific consultancy in the field of atomic force microscopy.
