Dr Powell works on metamaterials, structured materials with unusual electromagnetic properties.

He has expertise in microwave and terahertz experiments, particularly in the field of nonlinear and tunable metamaterials.

He is also an expert on numerical techniques for modelling metamaterials and nanophotonic structures. He has released an open-source code called OpenModes, for finding the modes of open electromagnetic structures with strong radiation losses.
