Research Interests

My background is in spin-based quantum information processing and transport in nanoelectronic devices. In particular, I am interested in using the spin states of donor atoms in silicon for quantum computation. My work at UCL concerns hybrid quantum systems, where I am looking at interfacing donors in silicon with another very successful quantum technology - superconducting circuits.

Interesting fact

I grew up in Cairns, Australia, between the great barrier reef and tropical rainforest.
