Shaffique ADAMPhD, Cornell University, USA (2006)
My background in mesoscopic quantum condensed matter theory. I am currently interested in:
Theoretical studies on the effects of disorder and interactions in Dirac fermion systems such as graphene and topological insulators;
Exploring the effecs of impurities and electronic screening on experimentally measurable quantities such as transport and scanning probe experiments;
Application of graphene for new electronic devices.
