I am the group's device maker. My interests lie in the design, fabrication, and characterisation of graphene-based field-effect transistors, using different side-functionalised graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) as the conducting channel. I study electronic transport through these nanoscale devices at millikelvin temperatures, where charging effects for a single particle are visible, and room temperature, for testing the feasibility of logic applications. Previously, I performed pulsed electron-spin resonance (ESR) measurements for obtaining the quantum coherence of open-shell polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.
Specific research interests include: Design and fabrication of nanodevices, electron-transport spectroscopy for understanding the role of the GNRs length and side-functionalisation on magnetoresistance properties, and quantum coherence in carbon nanomaterials.
