From 2005 to 2007, Marc Bescond was Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Physics at Grenoble INP. Before attending Grenoble, he was post-doc in the Device Modelling Group at the University of Glasgow. Since October 2007, he is researcher at the CNRS (chargé de recherche). He is also Professor of Physics at ISEN-Toulon. His research interest is in the modelling of nano/opto-electronic devices, three-dimensional simulations of quantum transport using the non-equilibrium Green’s function formalism.
