Born: 1974

Interests: Theoretical Physics; Superconductivity, Mesoscopic Physics

I graduated in High Energy Physics, in particular supersymmetry, supergravity and string theory.

Three years ago I started a PhD in Amsterdam, under the supervision of Prof Dr Adri Lodder. The first part of my project was dedicated to dirty (diffusive) anisotropic superconductors.

I am now in my last year of PhD and I am working in clean (balistic) multilayered structures of S(superconductor)/N(normal layer) systems.
I am determinig the local density of states inside S and N layers of the SN multilayer. In general it is enough to consider only Andreev reflection at S/N interfaces. It turns out that this approximation fails in certain conditions and exact calculations are required.
This is what I am doing...

For more details of my project, please have a look on my home page or send me an e-mail.
