B.S., Physics, University of Bucharest, Romania, 1994
M.S., Physics, University of Bucharest, Romania, 1995
Ph.D., Physics, Pennsylvania State University, 2001

Research Interests

  • New Physics in 2D Electrons
    • new phases in the low density and low temperature regime.
  • BCS-like Pairing of Composite Fermions
  • Non-Abelian Statistics and Possible Applications for Quantum Computing
  • Solid Phases in Electronic Systems
  • Spin Physics in Low Dimensional Semiconductors
  • Spectrally Enhanced Chemical Detection with Nanotube Transistors
    • Carbon nanotube transistors and silicon nanowire devices have been recently shown to change their electrical conductivity when tiny amounts of molecules are adsorbed onto their surface. Such detectors therefore have potential impact in fields like environmental protection, basic biology, and medical research.
