New postdoc – Kimberly Hsieh

Kimberly Hsieh starts as postdoc at Institute of Physics and Astronomy in October 2020.

Kimberly Hsieh joins the new research group of Profs. Yong P. Chen and Richard Balog as a postdoctoral fellow at the Villum Centre for Hybrid Quantum Materials and Devices (HQDM) and the Institute of Physics and Astronomy in October 2020.

Kimberly will work on novel 2D materials and hybrids (such as topological insulator-superconductor hybrids) using a combination of electronic transport and spectroscopy tools such as scanning probe microscopy.

Prior to joining Aarhus University, Kimberly had completed the Integrated PhD programme at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. She obtained her Masters (MSc) degree in 2014, following which she joined the Low Temperature Nanoelectronics group of Prof. Arindam Ghosh as a doctoral student. Her PhD work focused on characterizing 2D materials such as graphene and MoS2 synthesized by chemical vapour deposition (CVD) with techniques such as time-averaged electrical transport and low frequency noise spectroscopy. She completed her PhD in July 2019 and continued to be affiliated to Indian Institute of Science as a Research Associate until July 2020.
