Leonardo Ranasinghe

Name: Leonardo Ranasinghe

Nationality: Italian

Master in: Physics

College/University: University of Hamburg

PIER research field: Nanoscience

Research topic: Development of droplet drilled quantum dots for single photon manipulation and non-classical light storage

Further research interests:
Quantum theory, neuroscience

Special features about the research group:
Lot of encouragement and space for new ideas; highly competent and collaborative team members; great mentoring from supervisors, who are constantly willing to help.

This is what brought me to Hamburg/Benefits from PIER (Cooperation of DESY and Universität Hamburg):
International and young environment, interesting research topic and possibility for European collaboration through EU scholarship, courses to develop myself outside my research field (e.g. soft-skills), long international stays at collaborating institutions.

My plans for my career after my PhD:
Career in industrial R&D and developing a start-up

Hobbies/Outreach: Muay thai, abstract drawing, piano

My favorite place in Hamburg: Blankenese low lighthouse and Bornpark
