MSc Delft University of Technology, NL (2003)
PhD Delft University of Technology, NL (2008)

Senior Research Fellow University of New South Wales

Floris has extensive experience in low-temperature electronic measurements and fabrication of nanostructures. His MSc research on Josephson Junction circuits in the group of Hans Mooij at Delft University of Technology resulted in the realisation of a superconducting inverter with phase-biased SQUIDs. He then worked on nickel-silicon spin valve devices in the lab of Charles Marcus at Harvard University. In 2003 he returned to Delft for his PhD research in the group of Leo Kouwenhoven, focusing on quantum transport in bottom-up grown semiconductor nanowires. As of October 2008 he started working as a post-doctoral researcher at UNSW in the group of Andrew Dzurak and Andrea Morello. His current interest goes out to quantum dots in silicon MOSFET structures and the read-out of single phosphorous donors using silicon single-electron transistors.
