Prof. Kristian S. Thygesen
Kristian S. Thygesen is a Professor of Theoretical Physics at the Technical University of Denmark. His research is mainly focused on the development and application of density functional theory (DFT) and many body methods for quantum transport as well as ground- and excited states properties of solids and nanostructured materials including single-molecule junctions, metal-organic interfaces, metal-oxides, graphene and other two- dimensional materials. He received his PhD from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in 2005 and after a post doc at Freie University Berlin he moved back to DTU where he became Associate Professor in 2009. From 2010-2011 he was the Director of NanoDTU and in 2012 he became a spokesperson for Quantum Transport in Nanostructures within the European network Psi-k. He became full Professor at DTU in 2013.
