Aaron Lau is an experimental quantum scientist who engineers and studies next-generation materials and devices to understand the physics of low-dimensional systems. He graduated from the National University of Singapore in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science (Physics), first class honors, before receiving the A*STAR Graduate Scholarship to pursue his PhD at the University of Oxford. There, he frequented the Department of Materials and the Royal Oak Pub where he worked on quantum transport through single-molecule electronics. He returned to A*STAR’s Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) in 2017, where he now works on atomically thin materials for quantum applications.
