TCQP 2016 comings and goings

The beginning of 2016 sees quite a few movements of TCQP members (both in and out).

Tim DuBois is now established in his new position within the Electromagnetic Field Theory research group at Chalmers University of Technology. In addition, he recent had his PhD graduation - as illustrated by the floppy-hat selfie.

Both Scott Todd and Daniel Stavrevski successfully completed their honours degrees at the end of 2015. Scott will commence a PhD at the beginning of the year, while at this stage Daniel plans to commence a Masters by Research later in the year.

In addition, this year we welcome three new honours students Ben Dumas (supervisor Cole), Richard Rutter (Greentree) and Joseph Worboys (Greentree).

PhD Submission - Kelly Walker

A big year of submissions and completions continues with Kelly Walker who submitted her PhD thesis today, entitled "Charge correlation and transport properties in one-dimensional arrays of tunnel junctions". Kelly's thesis is an extensive study of what is know and not known about transport through tunnel junction arrays, both the linear and bilinear cases. She has explored a sizeable chunk of what is an incredibly large parameter space and found many surprising new observations in these circuits. Kelly has published 3 papers during her PhD, in PRB, IEEE (ICONN conference proceeding) and Sci.Rep. I hope that now Kelly has submitted she will finally take a holiday, because as far as I can tell she has spent close to 7 days a week for 3.75 years working on her thesis. Well done Kelly, your hard work has certainly paid off in a very extensive and detailed thesis.

TCQP on the arXiv - June/July 2015

TCQP has had a series of new papers on the arXiv in the last few months.
These include:

Congratulations to everyone, particularly Caitlin for her first ever paper.

TCQP at the AAvHF Biennial Conference

Four members of TCQP recently attended the Biennial Conference of the Australian Association of von Humboldt Fellows, in Hobart, Tasmania. Jared and Nicolas gave oral presentations and we all learnt about such diverse topics as the genetics of the Tasmanian tiger and the concept of Evidentiality in linguistics. A welcome reception in Government house, the conference dinner and a visit to the MONA gallery were all highlights.

Welcome to our new Honours student - Sem. 2 2015

Welcome Tommy Bartolo officially to the TCQP group.  Tommy is know to most after working with Andy last year. This year, he will be working with Jared on magnon-magnon interactions and harmonic oscillator chain models for his honours thesis.
