Mark Buitelaar is Reader at the Department of Physics and the London Centre for Nanotechnology, University College London. After undergraduate studies at Delft University, the Netherlands, he moved to Basel University, Switzerland, for his PhD. There he pioneered the study of superconducting proximity effects in quantum dots and quantum wires, which has since become a very active area of research. After his PhD he worked at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge where he held a Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship (2009-2013), focusing on spin-entangled electron transport in carbon nanotubes and graphene.

In 2012 he joined UCL, and is currently leading a group working on quantum information processing using carbon-based materials. His group also works on developing tools to fabricate and investigate nanostructures defined in transition metal dichalcogenide monolayers. The results of Mark Buitelaar’s research are summarised in over 26 publications, which attracted over 1300 citations.
