Prof. Jared Cole | ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science

Cole is a theoretical physicist who specialises in quantum theory and the study of open-quantum systems, particularly when applied to solid-state nanostructures. He has extensive experience in modelling and understanding electron transport, spin physics and decoherence theory, all of which are central to understanding the control and manipulation of excitons.
