André Dankert is currently a postdoctoral researcher in the nanoelectronics and spintronics research group of Prof. Saroj P. Dash. André Dankert worked for almost 10 years in several research areas of condensed matter and solid state physics. During his studies in physics in Dresden (Germany) he worked 5 years as a student researcher in a high magnetic field facility investigating novel material properties under extreme conditions. He is also engaged in several academic and industrial collaborations combining research and programming by developing measurement setups and software solutions. Since he started his doctoral studies at Chalmers University of Technology in 2011, he investigates the electronic and spintronic properties of graphene and other two-dimensional materials, such as semiconducting layered materials, topological insulators and their heterostructures. He defended his doctoral thesis successfully in February 2015.
