Research Themes
Research Summary

I am interested in understanding and controlling the fundamental quantum properties of matter at the atomic scale for potential applications in classical and quantum information processing. My research group uses atomic-scale fabrication and cryogenic-temperature, ultrahigh-vacuum scanning tunnelling microscopy and spectroscopy to create and investigate nanostructures in semiconductor and two-dimensional materials.  Often these measurements are made in conjunction with complementary techniques including momentum-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy and quantum simulation.

Teaching Summary

My primary teaching responsibility is lecturing the core 2nd year Quantum Physics module, PHAS0022.  I also teach in the undergraduate practical laboratory and give graduate lectures on scanning probe microscopy.
