“First I shall test by experiment before I proceed further, because my intention is to consult experience first and then with reasoning show why such experience is bound to operate in such a way”

Leonardo Da Vinci, Notebook

In my MSc project I worked with Federico Lombardi on spectroscopy characterisation via Pulsed Electron Spin Resonance of open-shell non-Kekulè organic frameworks. These nanographene molecules represent the state-of-art of organic synthesis and they are the testing workbench for one of the most beautiful fundamental theories about periodic systems. Using advanced pulse experiments, it possible to determine coherence times and verify the presence of multiple spin-spin interactions within the structure.

During the DPhil I will study nanographene quantum transport properties at mK, focusing more on quantum computing applications.
