Personal bio
David Goldhaber-Gordonâ??s research uses nanofabrication, materials growth, precision low-temperature electrical measurements, and novel scanning probe techniques to study how electrons organize themselves and flow on the nanoscale. In this regime, quantum effects and electron interactions are important, confounding intuitions gleaned from larger-scale electronics. Davidâ??s research group fabricates and studies devices based on such diverse materials as semiconductors, complex oxides, organic molecules, and carbon (nanotubes and graphene films). In addition to basic physics studies, he works with materials scientists, engineers, and chemists to explore how nanostructured materials can change how we think about electronic devices and energy conversion technologies. David co-founded and directs the Center for Probing the Nanoscale, an NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center. David earned his AB in Physics and AM in History of Science from Harvard in 1994, and his Ph.D. in Physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1999. He was then a Junior Fellow in the Harvard Society of Fellows for two years, prior to joining the Stanford faculty in 2001. He enjoys a wide variety of board games, and avidly attends farmer's markets.
