Research summary

Our current research activities involve investigating electron transport in low-dimensional semiconductors nanostructures  based on GaAs at ultra-low temperatures and high magnetic field. 

We investigate quantum many-body effects in condensed matter systems for discovering new fundamental quantum physics and harnessing them for future quantum technologies. 

Some of the major, current activities:  
1. Engineering electron wavefunction in low-dimensions (1D) for spintronics applications

2. Self-organised charge fractionlisation of electrons in the 1D-2D regime
3. Wigner Crystallisation of electrons in low-dimensions 
4. Spin-orbit interactions

Other research interests:
1. Light matter interactions  
2. Self assembly of molecules 
3. Quantum transport through single molecules and self-assembled nano structures (nanoparticles, nanowires, nanotubes, etc.)
