Nathan’s background is in van der Waals
assembly of 2D heterostructures, optical microspectroscopy of 2D
semiconductors, and 2D magnetism. He completed his Ph.D. in the group of Prof. Xiaodong Xu at the University of Washington, and has been in Munich since
Summer 2020 as a START fellow of MCQST. He is
originally from Eugene, Oregon.
His main scientific interests are exciton
many-body physics, quantum simulation, and proximity effects in
2D materials. Personal interests include cheesemaking and photography.
Jinah Choi (Joined May 2021)
Jinah aims to manifest novel quantum effects exhibited by single or an ensemble of excitons in 2D heterostructures by controlling them via substrate engineering. Her academic backgrounds reflect the trail of her interests from experimental semiconductor physics to numerical and statistical methods in cosmology with voids. She is originally from Seoul, South Korea.
Amine Ben Mhenni (Joined November 2021)
Karina Houska (Joined April 2021, joint with the group of A. Stier) Karina, who did her Bachelor's degree at LMU Munich, is a "condensed
matter physics" master student at TUM. Her Bachelor's thesis was in
theoretical physics and simulation of silicon, but since that, her focus
has shifted more towards hands-on experiments
in the field of new semiconductor. She is looking forward to exploring
the optoelectronic properties of 2D materials. In her free time, she
loves to sew and do all kinds of crafting, go hiking or play volleyball.
Hoohyeon Lee (Joined October 2021)
Hoohyeon is a master's student of Quantum Science & Technology program at TUM & LMU. He is now studying the magnetic and optical properties of 2D materials, especially CrXBr magnetic semiconductors. In a wider veiw, he is interested in researching and developing universal quantum computers in the future. He is originally from Jeju, Korea and likes taking a walk around the town, reading books and watching good movies in his free time.
Ferdinand Menzel (Joined March 2021)
originally joined the group for his Bachelor's thesis. After completing
this in September 2021, he is now a working student. His work focuses
heterostructures, studying their electronic and optical properties.
His leisure time is spent on handball and
a good book every now and then.
Adrian Paulus (Joined March 2022)
Adrianstudies Quantum Science & Technology at TUM & LMU. He supports the group's research efforts in creating 2D semiconductor-based devices for quantum simulation.
His free time is spent with gymnastics or the occasional hike in the Munich area.
Andes Rogata (Joined April 2022)
Andes is motivated in studying the transport properties of superlattices in heterobilayer TMDs. He is originally from Indonesia and loves to play table tennis and badminton during the weekend.
Nick Metelski (Joined April 2022)
