Dr. Yann-Michel Niquet graduated from ISEN, an electronic engineering school in Lille, France, in 1997. He also received a Master Degree in Physics from the University of Paris-Sud in 1997, and a PhD in Materials Science from the University of Lille in 2001. He joined the Institute for Nanosciences and Cryogenics (INAC) of the CEA Grenoble in 2003.
He is leading research on the electronic and transport properties of semiconductor nanostructures, and is coordinating the development of the TB_Sim code, a platform for multi-scale modelling in nanosciences and nanotechnologies. TB_Sim has received in 2012 the third prize at the “Bull-Fourier” contest (High Performance Computing) for its performances on parallel and graphics cards machines.
Yann-Michel Niquet has been involved in many national and European research projects [e.g., the EU project “NODE”]. He has published around 100 papers (2300 citations, h-index 27).
