Professor Sadeghi is a Professor of Computational Quantum EngineeringLink opens in a new window and UKRI Future Leaders FellowLink opens in a new window in the School of EngineeringLink opens in a new window at the University of WarwickLink opens in a new window and head of Quantum Device ModellingLink opens in a new window group. His main research area is theoretical nanoscale electronics and computational materials discovery and collaborates at the interface between Physics, Chemistry and Electronic Engineering. He is a recipient of two prestigious fellowships, the Leverhulme Trust Early Career FellowshipLink opens in a new window in June 2017 and the UKRI Future Leaders FellowshipLink opens in a new window in Feb 2019. He has published more than 150 peer-reviewed papers in high ranked journals such as Nature, Nat. Mat, Nat. Nano, Nat Comm., Nat. Elec., Nano Lett. ACS Nano, JACS, Adv. Fun. Mat, Angewadte, Nanoscale. He co-created the quantum transport code "GOLLUM" and leads its distribution and development.
