Hatef Sadeghi


Dr. Sadeghi is an Associate Professor and UKRI Future Leaders Fellow in the School of Engineering at the University of Warwick and head of Device Modelling 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 Fellowship in June 2017 and the UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship in Feb 2019. He has published more than 120 peer-reviewed papers in high ranked journals such as Nature, Nat. Mat, Nat. Nano, Nat Comm., Nano Lett. ACS Nano, JACS, Adv. Fun. Mat, Angewadte, Nanoscale. He co-created the quantum transport code "GOLLUM" and leads its distribution and development.
