Research overview

My research concerns the low temperature properties of nanoscale structures, including quantum dots, graphene and 2D materials, superconducting devices, and nanomechanical resonators. At low enough temperatures, quantum mechanical phenomena dominate the behaviour of these systems. I am interested in how this can be exploited to build new solid-state devices to advance computation, metrology, and sensing. I am currently working on techniques to reach temperatures below 1 millikelvin inside nanoscale devices.

PhD supervision

Please get in touch if you are interested in a PhD in the area of low temperature nanoelectronics. Projects are available on a range of topics, including superconductor-based quantum sensors, hybrid graphene/superconducting devices, ultralow temperature thermometry and on-chip refrigeration.
