Pedram Roushan

Pedram Roushan is a Visiting Graduate Student Researcher in the Electron Physics Group. He received a B.S. in Mathematics and Physics from University of Pittsburgh, and is now a Ph.D. candidate at Princeton University working under the supervision of Professor Ali Yazdani. Pedram’s current research is focused on characterizing the surface states of topological insulators, with key measurements being made at the CNST in collaboration with Joseph Stroscio.
