Dr Hatef Sadeghi

Dr. Sadeghi is an Assistant Professor and UKRI Future Leaders Fellow in the School of Engineering at the University of Warwick. He was a Lecturer in Physics in the Department of Physics at Lancaster University before joining Warwick on September 2019. His main research area is theoretical nanoscale electronics. He was a Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher at Lancaster University and awarded the Best International PhD Student Award in July 2015. He is a recipient of two prestigious fellowships, the Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship in June 2017 and the UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship in Feb 2019. He has published more than 100 peer-reviewed papers several of which are in Nature, Nature Materials, Nature Nanotechnology, Nano Letters, PNAS, JACS, Nature Communications, ACSNano, Advanced Functional Materials, Angewandte. He collaborates at the interface between Physics, Chemistry and Electronic Engineering. He co-created the quantum transport code "Gollum" and is its manager, a co-licence holder and co-author.
