Prof. Dr. Dmitri K. Efetov
Dmitri received a Diploma (M.Sc.) in Physics from ETH Zurich in 2007. He then earned a M.A., M. Ph. and a Ph.D. in Physics from Columbia University in 2014, working under the supervision of Prof. Philip Kim. After subsequent postdoctoral work in the group of Prof. Dirk Englund at MIT, Dmitri moved to ICFO as a group leader in 2017. His research focuses on the investigation of novel two-dimensional materials at the intersection of condensed matter physics, optics and quantum science.
Dr. Aamir Mohammed Ali
Aamir received a Ph.D. in Physics from the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) in Bangalore in 2016, working on localization properties of graphene in the group of Prof. Arindam Ghosh. Having started his Ph.D. studies at the age of 15 he was one of the youngest doctoral graduates in India. In the LDQM group Aamir pursues postdoctoral work on opto-electronic properties of 2D hetero-structures.
Dr. Xiaobo Lu
Xiaobo received a Ph.D. from the Institute of Physics at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in Beijing in 2017, working on Moire superlatices in epitaxially grown graphene/hBN hetero-structures under the supervision of Prof. Guangyu Zhang. In the LDQM group Xiaobo pursues postdoctoral work on transport and opto-electronic properties of novel 2D materials.
Hamidreza Fayaz Movahed
Hamidreza completed his B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering and Solid State Physics at Sharif University in Tehran. He then received an M.A.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from University of Toronto in 2016, working on low-dimensional nanostructures for advanced photovoltaics under supervision of Prof. Ted Sargent. After graduation, he co-founded Bamasys group in the marketing sector. In 2017, he received a Marie Curie PhD fellowship to join the LDQM group, where his research interests include low-dimensional materials, high temperature superconductivity, and quantum devices.
