Synopsis:

My research is directed primarily towards the physics of novel semiconductor materials and devices. The work extends from the analysis of the properties of electronic materials and new device concepts to the development of analytical and numerical models. In addition, my group is involved in laboratory work focusing on high-pressure experiments that shed light on the electrical properties of new semiconductor materials and devices.
