NanoEngineering Group

Tawfique Hasan

Welcome to the NanoEngineering Research group at the Cambridge Graphene Centre (CGC).

Our work encompasses Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science and Nanotechnology, exploiting 0D, 1D and 2D nanomaterials for (opto)electronics, photonics, sensors and energy devices. We are also interested in computation-enabled smart devices, where algorithms are playing an increasingly important role in their performance and reliability. Exploiting the unique characteristics of various nanomaterials and synergies between them, supported by advanced learning algorithms is the theme of our ambitious multidisciplinary research, with a view towards real world applications.

We are always looking for highly motivated MPhil and PhD candidates with excellent academic records in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science, Nanobiotechnology, Machine Learning or general Engineering background. International postdoctoral researchers for medium and long term collaborative research visits are also welcome. If you are interested, please get in touch with Tawfique directly.
