About me

Research Interests:

Superconductivity, Josephson Effects, Quantum Phase Transitions
Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices, Superconducting Resonators, Thermoelectrics

I have a Ph.D. degree in Physics and during my studies I have worked on Superconducting Quantum Interference Device (SQUID) Chains. These devices show many interesting and novel effects, but in order to observe and measure these effects the devices should be built at nanoscale and the measurements must be taken at subkelvin temperatures (~15mK). Therefore I have designed and fabricated many nanoscale circuits and conducted cryogenic measurements. I have an extensive experience with nanofabrication. Fabrication of these circuits is mainly conducted at KTH-Nanofabrication Laboratory (Albanova) and I have licences for most of the equipments stationed there.

Currently I am working at KTH - Applied Physics as a researcher and developing some novel fabrication and measurement techniques for thermoelectric materials using FIB-SEM.
