Overview

I work on semiconductor nano-optics, quantum physics and photonics. If you are interested in these topics, or working with us, please get in touch!

Research

A full list of publications can be found on my Google Scholar page.

My research is funded by the EU, the Royal Society (RGS\R1\191251), the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales, Innovate UK and the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. I am a co-investigator on the UK National Hub in Quantum Computing and Simulation from 2019 until 2024 (EP/T001062/1), part of the Future Compound Semiconductor Manufacturing Hub (EP/P006973/1) and holder of an EPSRC Fellowship until 2025.

Biography

After an undergraduate degree at Cambridge and a PhD at Imperial College I worked as a post-doc at Imperial College on Molecular Beam Epitaxy of III-V semiconductors. I then joined Toshiba Research Europe Limited in Cambridge to work on semiconductor quantum technology, where I became Team Leader.

I joined Cardiff University in 2017. I work with the Institute for Compound Semiconductors, the Ser Cymru Advanced Materials group, the Condensed Matter and Photonics group (in the School of Physics and Astronomy) and Materials and Magnetics group (in the School of Engineering).

Supervisions

I am interested in taking on students with enthusiasm. An interest in quantum optics is also useful.
