Andreas Isacsson

Biträdande professor at Chalmers, Physics, Condensed Matter Theory

I engage both in research and teaching at the department. My main line of research is in the theory of carbon based nanoelectromechanical systems in the classical and quantum regime. For more information see the "Research" tab. In regards to teaching I am presently course responsible for the project based introductory course TIF275 for 1st year students in the Engineering Physics programme. More information is found under the "Teaching" tab. Don't forget to check out the "Other activities" tab!
