Current Research

  • Various topics in quantum condensed matter theory.

  • Physics of graphene and other 2D systems, covering the topics of electronic transport, strain, disorder and localization, electron‐electron interactions, phonons, geometro‐elastic phenomena, new device functionalities and applications.

Strain-engineering can be a new route for tailored graphene devices, such as confining or tunnelling barriers, as the one depicted above.
