Research Interests

My research involves the coherent control of electron and nuclear spins in solid state materials and devices, with a focus on quantum technologies. Quantum technologies are ones which exploit quantum superposition and entanglement to achieve major advances over current technologies in areas including communication, sensing and information processing.

The systems we study include donors in silicon (including bulk measurements and transport through nanoscale devices) as well as custom-designed molecules which exhibit particular spin interactions. Specific research interests include: the transfer of quantum information between different degrees of freedom, understanding and mitigating spin decoherence mechanisms, the interaction of nuclear spins with transient electron spins and robust methods for generating spin entanglement.
