Gleb Finkelstein is an experimental physicist interested in inorganic and biologically inspired nanostructures: carbon nanotubes, graphene, and self-assembled DNA 'origami'. These objects reveal a variety of interesting electronic properties that may form a basis for future detectors and sensors, or serve as individual devices in quantum information processing.
