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 semiconductors.

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.
