Timothy Hirsch

Tim is a PhD student at the University of Queensland, supervised by Warwick Bowen.

His research aims to develop a nanomechanical computing architecture, which uses mechanical vibrations (phonons) instead of electricity to store and transmit information. Compared to traditional electronics, phononic computers promise tiny power consumption and radiation resistance.
