I studied Physics at TCD graduating in 2019 and joining the APRG in September of the same year. My research is focused on developing innovative architectures to improve the performance of Josephson Junctions for use in quantum computing. Currently, I am fabricating these junctions by electron beam deposition in ultra high vacuum (UHV) and characterising them using atomic force microscopy (AFM). I am interested in using Nb as our superconducting material due to its well studied superconducting properties.
Outside of my research, I am also involved in Voluntary Tuition Group in Trinity giving grinds in maths and physics to second-level students. I have also helped work as a sound mixer and boom mic operator on several short films produced by the Film Society in Trinity.
