Senior Lecturer
School of Materials Science & Engineering

I am a Scientia Senior Lecturer and ARC Future Fellow. I work on quantum materials with novel physical properties, including topological insulators, interface superconductors and two-dimensional materials. My research techniques include molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) technique and scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM). I am currently seeking to recruit PhD candidates and other research students. I have scholarships available for eligible applicants.
