Research Overview

My research concerns the low temperature properties of nanoscale structures. In particular, 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.
