Eduardo Jian Hua Lee and Ferry Prins have joined recently IFIMAC.
Short bio Eduardo Jian Hua Lee:
Eduardo Lee obtained his PhD in physics from EPF Lausanne for the thesis “Scanning photocurrent microscopy of carbon nanostructures” developed at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart, Germany. He then moved to the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) in Grenoble, France as a postdoctoral fellow, partially funded by a Marie Curie Fellowship. After that, he spent a year at the Institut Neel in Grenoble as a postdoc, before finally joining IFIMAC as a young researcher.
His main research interests are focused on devices based on low-dimensional semiconductors. In particular, he is interested in studying their electronic properties as well as potential new device functionalities for applications in quantum information. Experimentally, this is accomplished by means of low temperature electron transport measurements. At present, his research is directed towards studying the interaction of nanoscale semiconductors and superconductors.
Short bio Ferry Prins:
Ferry Prins is currently an Ambizione Group Leader at the Optical Materials Engineering Laboratory at ETH Zurich. His research focuses on the development of on-chip light-management systems for molecular sensing applications and next-generation energy technologies. Prior to coming to ETH, Ferry spent two years as a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Prof. Will Tisdale at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he specialized in spectroscopic studies of energy transfer and exciton dynamics in nanomaterial assemblies. Ferry holds an M.Sc. in Chemistry from Leiden University (2007) and a Ph.D. in Physics from Delft University of Technology (2011). During his Ph.D. in Delft he worked at the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience under the advisement of Prof. Herre van der Zant on the development of single-molecule and nanoparticle-based electronic devices.
