Jesse E. Balgley

Postdoctoral Scholar

Jesse began his postdoctoral research in the Hone Lab in June 2022. His work focuses on improving the performance and scalability of superconducting quantum devices through the incorporation of two-dimensional van der Waals materials.

Jesse received his B.S. in physics from the City College of New York in 2014, working with Professor Cory Dean to characterize remnant impurity scattering in high quality encapsulated graphene devices through the summer of 2016. In May 2022, he received his Ph.D. in physics from Washington University in St. Louis, where he studied the electronic properties of heterostructures comprising graphene and the layered Mott insulator and putative quantum spin liquid alpha-ruthenium trichloride with Professor Erik Henriksen.
