Johnny graduated from Georgia Tech and currently does research in low-temperature, low-dimensional electron transport specializing in multi-terminal Josephson junctions, thermal transport, and the interplay of superconductivity and the quantum Hall effect in van der Walls heterostructures. Outside of research, he likes going on hikes with his wife and dog, watching/playing sports, and exploring Durham's great breweries.
