Research interests

keywords: spintronics, thermoelectric phenomena, topological superconductivity, quantum dots

My current scientific interest is related to interplay of spin, charge and heat transport in hybrid nanostructures combining magnetic, superconducting or topological properties. Particularly, I investigate theoretically electron, heat and spin transport properties of quantum dots attached to two or more external leads, each characterized by its peculiar properties. These external leads, coupled to the central region, can possess magnetic, superconducting or topological properties . Single quantum dot or a system of quantum dots coupled to two or more leads where, at least, one of them is characterized by such „unconventional” properties is what we call a hybrid nanostructure. The topics of my interest cover research related to spintronics, especially to its subfields, such as spincaloritronics and superconducting spintronics.
