Chris joined the MBE group in January, 2016 after graduating from the University of Calgary with a BSc in electrical engineering (minor in physics). He enjoys math and physics -- particularly their applications in engineering. During his undergrad, he explored using differential geometry to create better numerical methods in electromagnetism. In the MBE group, he plans to study intersubband polariton lasers.
Anthony joined the MBE group in Sept. 2016, after his graduation from the University of Waterloo with a BSc degree in Physics. He enjoys studying quantum physics and understanding phenomena of nanotechnology in a quantum mechanical point of view.
Ida acquired her undergraduate degree from the Materials Science and Engineering department at Sharif University of Technology in Iran and her master’s from the Mechanical Engineering department at the University of Waterloo.
Peyton (Yinqiu) Shi obtained her BSc degree in Physics from the University of Toronto in 2014. In the summer of 2013, she conducted a research project at Forschungszentrum Jülich in Germany on Au-free InSb nanowires, which gave her much appreciation for nanotechnology. Peyton joined the group first as an M.Sc student in September, 2014.
Alan has a BSc degree in Physics from the Chinese University of Hong Kong (2007) and MSc in Physics from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (2009). Before joining the Zbig's MBE group, Alan participated in various nano-photonics and biophysics research projects.
