Adarsh Ganesan

Biography:

Adarsh Ganesan is a PhD student in the Nanoscience Centre of University of Cambridge. He is currently passionate about exploring new experimental regimes of mechanical resonators and harnessing such regimes for the precision measurement of physical quantities. His original experimental work on ‘phononic frequency combs’ is one of the initial results of this broad vision which has also resulted in related coverage by American Physical Society, American Institute of Physics and Physics World, among others. His work is recognized by 2017 John Winbolt Prize (University of Cambridge), 2017 ABTA UK Doctoral Researcher Award and 2018 IET Hudswell International Research Scholarship. He is also a 2018 APS GSNP Student Speaker Award finalist.
