Director, Nanofabrication Facilities

SBQMI Centre of Excellence

Stewart Blusson Quantum Matter Institute (SBQMI) is proud to number itself amongst the world's leaders in quantum material research. As recent recipients of an additional $86M in funding from Canada First Research Excellence Fund we are now poised to capitalize on the transformational potential of quantum materials - increasing our stream of breakthrough discoveries and commercializing promising new technologies through spin-off companies and industry partnerships. Micro-electronics, medicine, sustainable energy, and advanced manufacturing are just some of the industries that will benefit from our research.

SBQMI's excellence has been recognized through many awards, among them the establishment of the Max Planck - UBC Centre for Quantum Materials, only the third Max Planck Centre ever established outside Germany, and the UBC Canada Excellence Research Chair in Quantum Materials and Devices.
