Damien Querlioz


I received the Predoctoral Training from the Ecole Normale Superieure Paris, and the Ph.D. degree from University Paris-Sud in 2008. I was a Postdoctoral Scholar at Stanford University, USA, in 2009 and at the Commissariat a l'Energie Atomique, France, in 2010. I then joined the University of Paris-Sud as a permanent CNRS Researcher, to develop new concepts in nanoelectronics relying on bio-inspiration. I focus especially on stochastic approaches. My research interests have also included the physics of advanced nanodevices. I have developed the Wigner Monte Carlo approach to simulate and understand quantum transport in nanometer-scale devices.

I have coauthored the book “The Wigner Monte-Carlo Method for Nanoelectronic Devices” (London: ISTE; Hoboken: Wiley, 2010) with Philippe Dollfus. I serve as an expert in nanoelectronics at the French Observatory of Micro and Nanotechnology, as a project reviewer for the French National Research Agency (ANR).

My research is funded by the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Union (FETOPEN BAMBI), Agence Nationale de la Recherche, Région Ile-de-France/DIM NANO-K and Ministère de l'écologie, du développement durable et de l'énergie. In recent years, I also received funding from CNRS/Mission pour l'Interdisciplinarité and CNRS/INSIS.
