We investigate the effects of disorder and electron-electron interactions on the optical properties of graphene quantum dots using tight-binding, mean-field Hubbard and configuration interaction approaches. We consider hexagonal armchair quantum dots containing up to 10806 atoms, where the disorder is modelled as a long-range random potential landscape, giving rise to electron-hole puddles. We show that disorder induced electron and hole localizations near Fermi level is reduced due to electron-electron interactions, making the observation of universal optical conductance robust against imperfections. When disorder is present, calculated absorption spectrum approaches the experimental results for isolated mono layer of graphene sheet.
