David J. Lockwood obtained his Ph.D. in physics from Canterbury University, New Zealand in 1969, and he was awarded a D.Sc. in 1978 from Edinburgh University, U.K. and a D.Sc. from Canterbury University in 2000 for his work on the electronic, optical, and magnetic properties of solids. He carried out post-doctoral work in physical chemistry at Waterloo University, Canada (1970-1971), and was a research fellow in Edinburgh University (1972-1978) before joining the National Research Council (NRC) of Canada in 1978 where he is presently a Principal Research Officer. At NRC Lockwood's research has centered on the optical properties of low dimensional materials and recently has focused on Group IV and III-V semiconductor quantum dots and transition-metal magnetic nanostructures. Lockwood has published more than 500 scientific articles in journals and books, which have received more than 7000 citations, and has 6 U.S. patents. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, the American Physical Society, and the Electrochemical Society and serves on the editorial boards of 6 physics journals as well as being the founding editor of the book series "Nanostructure Science and Technology". In 2005 he was awarded the Brockhouse Medal of the Canadian Association of Physicists for outstanding achievement in condensed matter and materials physics and the Tory Medal of the Royal Society of Canada for outstanding research in any branch of astronomy, chemistry, mathematics, physics, or an allied science. In 2008 he received the Exact and Natural Sciences Award of the Academy of Sciences of Cuba, in 2010 the Centennial Outstanding Achievement Award of the Electrochemical Society, and in 2011 the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Canadian Semiconductor Science and Technology Conference
