Professor Hatef Sadeghi 

Prof. Dr. Hatef Sadeghi is a Professor of Computational Quantum Engineering, UKRI Future Leaders Fellow and Head of Device Modelling Group in the School of Engineering at the University of Warwick. His main research area is theoretical nanoscale electronics and computational materials discovery. He is a recipient of two prestigious fellowships, the Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship in June 2017 and the UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship (the First cohort) in Feb 2019. He is Topic Editor of Nanomaterials. He has published more than 160 peer-reviewed papers several of which are in Nature, Nature Materials, Nature Nanotechnology, Nano Letters, PNAS, JACS, Nature Communications, ACSNano, Advanced Functional Materials, Science Advances, Angewandte, etc. He collaborates at the interface between Physics, Chemistry and Electronic Engineering. He co-created the quantum transport code "Gollum" and leads its development and distributions. Prof Sadeghi has developed new concepts and methodologies in the theory of nanoscale electronics including innovative strategies for demonstrating, controlling and exploiting quantum interference for applications in thermoelectricity, switching, sensing and optoelectronics.
