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 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 in high ranked journals. 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.
