As an Associate Professor at the University of Twente’s MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology I head an independent research line on silicon quantum electronics within the NanoElectronics group. I am co-director of the Centre for Quantum Nanotechnology Twente (QUANT), and coordinator of the FET-OPEN project TOPSQUAD. Below you can find a relatively technical description or my research. These two videos are reasonably accessible for a broader audience: TOPSQUAD and QUANT. Here are a Dutch radio interview and podcast about Quantum physics and technology (Sep 2021).
