Fabienne Michelini is Professor at Aix-Marseille University since 2022. She obtained her phD in condensed matter physics in 2000 at INSA Toulouse on low dimensional systems modelling. A skill she developed in the Laboratory of Physics of Nanostructures headed by Pr. Kapon during her 4-years post-doc at EPFL, Switzerland. She defended her HDR diploma in 2016 on the ‘Light-matter interaction at the nanoscale”.
Her expertise has indeed its roots in the theoretical/numerical building of empirical models within the k.p method to understand the electronic and optical properties of realistic condensed-matter systems structured at the nanoscale. In parallel, she has gained a great expertise in high performance computing for large-scale numerical problems. For the last years, she has investigated the transport properties of opened quantum structures using effective methods within the Green’s function formalism. She focuses on time-dependent and non-equilibrium regimes in the understanding and the design of bioinspired nano-architectures for light-harvesting and energy transport.
