Dr. Johnson’s research is focused on the nano-scaled transport properties (charge, energy, spin, etc.) of nanostructures and single molecules, including carbon nanotubes, graphene, DNA, synthetic proteins, and other biomolecules. They are particularly interested in the physical properties of hybrid nanostructures and their use in molecular sensing. Other research interests include the development of scanning probe techniques for electronic property measurement of nanomaterials and nanodevices.
