Personal profile

Research interests

My main interests lie in the physics and applications of low-dimensional systems such as the two-dimensional electron gas in semiconductor structures. I am also interested in the underlying nuts-and-bolts such as band-structure, impurities and interfaces and furthermore, the application of technology to making new experimental systems. At present, I am particularly interested in Silicon / Silicon dioxide nanostructures for generating new coupled low-dimensional systems.
