I am a material scientist, with an expertise in semiconductor
nanowire heterostructures. I am very interested in difficult
material combinations, for example highly mismatched semiconductors,
multi-family semiconductors or dissimilar materials like metals and
My research is driven by the challenges encountered by material
science at the nanoscale. Defects and surface effects play an
important role at those scales and impose stringent requirement on
the materials, interface and surface quality.
I grow nanowires for applications in quantum devices, single photon
sources, photodetectors, for fundamental research and for the
development of novel characterization tools adapted to nano-objects.
