University Of Glasgow Researcher Receives RAENG/Leverhulme Research Fellowship

A researcher from the James Watt School of Engineering has been named as the recipient of a Royal Academy of Engineering/Leverhulme Trust Research Fellowship.

The Royal Academy of Engineering has awarded the fellowship to Dr Kaveh Delfanazari. The Fellowship will enable Dr Delfanazari to pursue new research into the on-chip generation of coherent continuous and pulsed terahertz waves for future secure quantum communication systems and networks.A portrait of Dr Kaveh Delfanazari

Dr Delfanazari is one of seven outstanding engineering researchers from across the UK who were awarded Leverhulme Trust Research Fellowships this year.

His research on hybrid semiconducting, graphene, and superconducting quantum hardware has the potential to revolutionize the way we compute, communicate, and store energy.

Dr Delfanazari said: “I am delighted to be awarded this prestigious fellowship. This is a great opportunity for me to make significant progress on research that could have a real impact on future generations of computing and communication systems and networks with accompanying benefits for the UK economy.

“I am grateful to the Leverhulme Trust and the Royal Academy of Engineering for their support.”

Dr Delfanazari is a Senior Member of IEEE and a Committee Member of the IOP Quantum Electronic and Photonic group & IOP Superconductivity group.

He has held positions as a Senior Research Associate in quantum devices and circuits at the University of Cambridge and as a Research Fellow and Project Leader in superconducting and quantum metamaterials at the University of Southampton.

Professor Anne Trefethen FREng, Chair of the RAEng / Leverhulme Trust Research Fellowships panel said: “I am delighted to see such a wide range of research covered by this year’s awardees and that we’re able to support such outstanding individuals across the UK from Scotland to Southampton. These research projects have the potential to deliver substantial benefits to society and the economy and I hope our support will help them to be realised.”
