Semiconductor Physics Group



Currently employed as a researcher in quantum information science in the Toshiba Cambridge laboratory. Completed my PhD in direct laser inscription of quantum photonic circuits with the group of Michael Withford in the Centre for Ultrahigh bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems (CUDOS), Australia. 


I enjoy learning about applications of interesting physical concepts. In particular I enjoy learning about the production and application of single photons. You can learn more here.
