Research Areas

We are pursuing research into the electronic and optical properties of a range of nanoscale systems, including zero-dimensional quantum dots, one-dimensional carbon nanotubes, and particularly two-dimensional layers and heterostructures.


We are interested in the fundamental properties of electronic states and phonons in novel nanoscale materials and structures, including carbon nanotubes, graphene, hexagonal boron nitride, and the transition metal dichalcogenides.


We are interested in development of new spectroscopic capabilities based on nonlinear optics, ultrafast pulses of coherent radiation and ultrashort electron pulses.
