Faculty of Sciences, Engineering and Technology

Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD - email supervisor to discuss availability.


As a Runners-­Up for the 2017 Eureka Prize and Winner in 2018, as a University Senior Research Fellow in the School of Physical Sciences of the University of Adelaide, as a Senior Lecturer in the School of Physics, UNSW (promoted 3.5 years after having been awarded my PhD), and as the holder of a 2012 ARC DECRA fellowship, I have constantly developed high-quality research, contributed significantly to teaching activities, and actively serviced the scientific and general communities. Since the DECRA award, I have independently established research in Silicon-­based Quantum Metrology. In addition, since the 2013 UNSW GOLDSTAR award and the subsequent hiring of a post-­doctoral fellow, I have extended this effort and opened-­up new lines of research focusing on novel hybrid Superconductor-­Semiconductor Single-Atom Transistor devices and on two-­dimensional transistors. I have been recognized internationally with oral presentations at international and national conferences and workshops of reputable national and foreign institutions. I have established unique skills in the physics of ultra-­small CMOS devices, Applied Superconductivity, in Ultra-Low Noise and Ultra Low-Temperature Techniques and in Precision Measurements.
