Georges Pavlidis is a NRC Postdoctoral Researcher in the Nanoscale Spectroscopy Group. He recently received his Ph.D. at the Georgia Institute of Technology under the supervision of Dr. Samuel Graham (2018). His doctoral research was focused on assessing the reliability of GaN transistors using optical and electrical techniques with high spatial and temporal resolution. His current interests include investigating resistive switching devices by leveraging AFM methods to achieve concurrently high spatial and temporal resolution for the characterization of their electrical, chemical and thermal properties. He is also interested in studying the transport mechanisms in 2D materials such as the dispersion of hyperbolic phonon polaritons in hexagonal Boron Nitride using techniques such as photothermal induced resonance (PTIR).
