David Leibold

I'm currently doing a research internship at the ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science in the research group of Dr. Fiona Beck. The internship focuses less on research, but rather on buildling, characterising and improving measurement setups.

My background is in solid state physics. For my bachelor thesis I worked in low temperature physics, while my master thesis focused on the fabrication of organic solar cells.
