Primary Interests

  • Transport in nanoscale conductors
  • Current-induced forces, electron-phonon interactions and current-driven dynamics
  • Time-dependent tight binding
  • Non-equilibrium non-adiabatic electron-nuclear motion

"If we take the view that quantisation of energy levels, tunnelling and interference are the effects where quantum mechanics departs most violently from classical notions, we may ask where do the two come closest? Nowhere is this proximity more compelling than in the realm of particle interactions." Undated, Anon
