I am interested in how energy transport behaves at the nanoscale in systems with low dimensionalities. In particular, I want to provide a better understanding of the dynamics of spin-dependent transport in nanostructures, which is fundamental for the technological development of spintronics.


My DPhil project is mainly about instrumentation of magnetic systems in extreme environments. This includes the development of a sensitive magnetometer with a fast-sweeping magnet at mK temperatures, which will provide new information about the magnetic properties of molecular magnets. Furthermore, I will develop a single-molecule EPR using a novel technique for single-spin detection.
