Niall Kennedy, a graduate of UCC, was awarded a Travelling Doctoral Studentship in Theoretical Physics in 2020.

Niall graduated from UCC in 2019 with a BSc in Physics, and then began his PhD in Physics at UCC. Niall focuses on visualization of electronic quantum matter at atomic scale using some of the world's most advanced scanning microscopes including the newly invented Scanning Josephson Tunnelling Microscope (SJTM). For maximum proficiency SJTM must operate in ultra-low-vibration and ultra-low-temperature (ULVT) facilities.

Niall will use the NUI Travelling Studentship to carry out research at Oxford University where the ULVT laboratories ~30m underground allow atomic resolution SJTM visualization of exotic states of electronic matter, most importantly in high temperature and topological superconductors.
