Research Interests

My group and I create theories, in the form of mathematical models, of the behaviour of photons and electrons in semiconductor nanostructures and related systems. These theories synthesize and explain experimental results, predict new effects, and guide the development of future devices. Some current research topics include For more information see my My current PhD students are David Racine and Kyle Ballantine.

PhD Opportunities

I'm looking for new PhD students to start in September 2014, in the general area of theory of quantum light and matter. Some possible projects are on dynamical phases of polariton condensates; photonic topological quantum computers and quantum control and decoherence in solid-state qubits. There is funding available for a suitable EU student. If that sounds like you please get in touch, ideally by email including brief details of your qualifications and academic background/record.
