Dr Cooper的博士论文题目是“表面活性剂与矿物表面的相互作用计算机仿真研究”，后作为博士后研究员在新西兰工业研究有限公司进行了一年的黄金表面长链硫醇的自吸附膜计算研究。此后，在制药业的资助下，于英国剑桥大学进行有机分子固体的热力学特性研究。Dr Cooper在同行评审科技期刊上发表了14篇文章，曾在多个科学会议上宣读他的研究成果。他的专长是计算材料科学，在固态材料研究计算方法上拥有相当丰富的经验。2011年加盟理文编辑，担任编辑。
Dr Cooper's PhD thesis was entitled "A Computer Simulation Study of the Interaction of Surfactants with Mineral Surfaces". He spent a year as a postdoctoral fellow at Industrial Research Ltd. in New Zealand, computationally studying self-adsorbed monolayers of long-chain thiols on gold surfaces. He then worked at the University of Cambridge where he was funded by the pharmaceutical industry to investigate the thermodynamic properties of organic molecular solids. Dr Cooper has published 14 articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals and has presented his work at numerous international scientific conferences. His expertise is in the area of computational materials science and he has considerable experience in the computational methods that are used to study solid-state materials. He joined the Edanz group as an editor in 2011.
