I have graduated from University of Warwick with a Master of Physics degree in 2016. After obtaining my PhD studentship through Graphene NOWNANO Centre of Doctoral Training, I am currently researching graphene and related 2D materials in the Condensed Matter Group, under the supervision of Prof. Kostya Novoselov FRS, and Dr. Artem Mishchenko.
My research interests mainly lie at the transport properties of van der Waals heterostructures where I look for new physical phenomena at extremely low temperatures and high magnetic fields.
For my PhD thesis, I am focussing on first ever systematic electronic transport investigation of mesoscopic rhombohedral graphite films of up to 50 layers thickness. These systems, being topological insulators, are an N-layer generalisation of graphene in low energy limit, possesing a Berry phase of NPi and massive Dirac fermions.
Previously, I have also been involved in projects on strained Ge QWs grown by RP-CVD, electrodeposited nanowires, phase change memory cells, nanomechanics of 2D materials and lastly graphene Schottky sensors.
