Graham was awarded a B.A. in Physics from TCD in 2011 after completely an undergraduate research project with the Photonics Group.
Graham's research interest is focused on investigating plasmonic enhancement of quantum well/quantum dot emission and energy transfer with a view to increase the efficiency of white LEDs. This involves modelling, fabrication and characterisation of different plasmonic nanostructures using different metal nanoparticles in a hybrid semiconductor quantum well/quantum dot structure.
