My research work is focused on the theory and modelling of hybrid semiconductor devices with emphasis on the electronic and spin properties. The physical systems of interest include mostly interacting quantum dots and graphene. Over the past few years, I have performed electronic transport calculations for interacting quantum dots in the spin blockade regime and explored: spectroscopy of coupled spin-qubits, electrically driven spin resonances, entanglement generation, spin-orbit effects as well as AC induced spin dynamics.

I am also interested in dynamic quantum dots and single electron
transport induced by a surface acoustic wave propagating along a
1D channel. My research interests also include graphene and how
this 2D material can be used to probe relativistic effects not
encountered in ordinary semiconductors. These effects could be
observed in the magnetic field induced energy spectra and the
local density of states of graphene quantum dots.
