Condensed Matter Experiment
Andrea Young uses electrical measurements to probe the properties of low dimensional systems. During his Ph.D., he focused on the physics of graphene, a single-layer thick material consisting of a hexagonal net of carbon atoms.
Andrea Young completed his Ph.D. work with Prof. Philip Kim at Columbia University in 2011. Andrea grew up in Washington, D.C., and received his undergraduate degree in Physics and Mathematics from Columbia University in 2006.
