Lausanne, Switzerland

Professor Andras Kis received his Master's degree from the University of Zagreb, Croatia, and his PhD in Physics from EPFL in 2003. He worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California, Berkeley from 2004. In 2008 he established a research group at EPFL dedicated to nanoelectronics based on two-dimensional semiconductors such as monolayers of transition metal dichalcogenides. His group demonstrated the first transistor based on a 2D semiconductor (monolayer MoS2) which had a high on/off ratio.

In 2015 he accepted the Chair of Theoretical Chemistry at Leipzig University. His research focuses on the computational science of nanostructured materials, in particular of two-dimensional crystals and molecular frameworks. 

Deep Manoj Jariwala
Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering
University of Pennsylvania
Philadelphia, PA, USA

My research interests lie broadly in the area of low-dimensional quantum materials, specifically 2D van der Waals layers for electronics, photonics, sensing and energy transduction. Our research group specializes in making and characterizing mixed-dimensional hetero-junctions and superlattices with a goal of understanding the charge and energy dynamics at the interfaces, tailoring dispersion of electrons, photons and phonons in artificial superlattices and identifying applications of these hetero-junctions and superlattices from low-power logic to memory devices as well as in photovoltaics, photodetectors, optical modulators and amplifiers.

Ermin Malic
Philipps-University Marburg
Marburg, Germany

My research interests include microscopic modeling of optics, dynamics and transport phenomena in atomically thin semiconductors (transition metal dichalcogenides, graphene and related heterostructures).

Valeria Nicolosi
Professor of Nanomaterials and Advanced Microscopy, School of Chemistry, CRANN & AMBER
Trinity College
Dublin, Ireland

Professor Valeria Nicolosi is an expert in the field of processing of low-dimensional nanostructures and high-end electron microscopy. She received a BSc in Chemistry from the University of Catania in 2001 and a PhD in Physics in 2006 from Trinity College Dublin. In 2012 she became ERC Research Professor at the School of Chemistry, Trinity College Dublin, and principal investigator in CRANN nanoscience centre. 

Luís Miguel Nunes Pereira
Associate Professor, Departamento de Ciência dos Materiais
Caparica, Portugal

Professor Luis Pereira received his Engineering degree in Materials Science in 2001 and PhD in 2008 from Universidade Nova de Lisboa. His PhD focused on polycrystalline silicon and high k dielectrics for TFT applications. He was involved in a team that demonstrated the first transistors made of oxides with paper as the dielectric. He is also a researcher at CENIMAT/I3N, with current research interests on the design and synthesis of 1D, 2D and 3D inorganic and hybrid nanostructures, chiral cellulose nanocomposites, functional micro and nanofibers and their integration on printed chromogenic, electronic and electrochemical devices.

Xinran Wang
School of Electronic Science and Engineering
Nanjing University
Nanjing, China

Professor Xinran Wang is a Chang Jiang Professor and doctoral adviser at the School of Electronic Science and Engineering at Nanjing University. In 2010 he received his PhD in physics from Stanford University on the synthesis and electronic devices of graphene. His research interests include the growth, physical properties and device applications of two-dimensional materials. He developed the world's first high Ion/Ioff ratio graphene nanoribbon field-effect transistor.
