Biography

 

Qwah is currently a Materials Engineering Ph.D. student at UC Santa Barbara under supervision of Professor James S. Speck. Previously, he graduated from Imperial College London with a Master's Degree in Physics with Theoretical Physics.

His current research interests include computational and experimental studies on 3-dimensional hole transport within nitride unipolar heterostructures using landscape theory and growing test structures via Molecular Beam Epitaxy. Additionally, he is also interested in applying landscape theory to alloy scattering mobility calculations as well as computational studies on the effects of threading dislocations on the properties of GaN p-n diodes in forward and reverse bias focusing on simulations of current conduction of holes and electrons as well as band energy calculations.
