### Andre Saraiva's Problem Solving Experience:

- I described theoretically the STM image of an electron bound to a dopant
- I was largely responsible for the foundation of valleytronics in silicon
- I defined the material parameters that make possible for photon correlations via Raman processes
- I designed one of the first proposals of quantum computers using valleys as qubits
- I developed a model for describing the valley structure of electrons in silicon
- I participated in the first demonstration of a coherently tunnel coupled system of a dopant and a quantum dot
