Research Description

Dr. Jarillo-Herrero runs a lab in the Department of Physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is an expert in nanofabrication techniques, quantum electronic transport and optoelectronic measurements in novel low-dimensional quantum materials. His group has made important contributions to the emerging field of quantum transport in van der Waals heterostructures, including the recent demonstration of a novel magnetic field induced symmetry-protected topological insulator state in graphene. His team also showed that the intrinsic photoresponse of graphene is dominated by hot charge carriers in non-equilibrium with the lattice, a study that has had a major impact in the study of energy relaxation and non-equilibrium dynamics in graphene. Dr. Jarillo-Herrero has won numerous awards, including an Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Award, a Presidential Early Career Award, and a Department of Energy Early Career Award. He is also the recipient of a David and Lucile Packard Fellowship, an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship and a National Science Foundation CAREER Award. Dr. Jarillo-Herrero earned his PhD from the Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands.
