Summary:

I am an experimentalist in the field of condensed matter physics. I study electrical properties of nanometre-size objects. As we find ways  to shrink one, two or all three dimensions of a solid, insights into how nature works on the scale of single electrons get uncovered. Along come prospects of smaller, faster and fundamentally different electronic devices. A spin computer or a quantum computer are examples. Nanofabrication makes it possible to attach electrodes to individual molecules or build artificial atoms. Novel materials such as graphene and semiconductor nanowires contribute previously unattainable properties to our toolbox. At TU Delft I investigate spin physics in nanowire quantum dots and superconductivity induced in semiconductors. In 2012 I move to the University of Pittsburgh, where I am now building a low temperature quantum transport laboratory.
