Mauricio Gómez Viloria,
Doctorant (2018 cohort)

Research interests:
I am currently working in theoretical mesoscopic physics.  The aim of my research is to understand spin–orbit coupling and how it can be engineered to manipulate the electronic transport in low-dimensional systems. Recently, I have also studied the unusual magnetism of gold nanoparticles.

Research interests:
My research aims to characterize and give an understanding of the carrier and spin dynamics in the GaN nanostructures that we implement with the help of ultrafast optical experiments using pulsed lasers

Marion Hurier,
Doctorant (2018 cohort)

Research interests:
I work on absorption spectrum at nanoscale resolution with an atomic force microscope. I aim for a future as teacher-researcher in the field of nanosciences, nanomaterials or combine techniques with an atomic force microscopy

Guido Masella,
Doctorant (2018 cohort)

Research interests:
I explore the physics of quantum many-body systems in and out of equilibrium, with emphasis on phases and phase transitions in (ultra)cold atomic gases. I am also deeply interested in developing numerical methods for solving many-body quantum problems.

Ulrich Noumbe,
Doctorant (2018 cohort)

Research interests:
I explore novel Van der Waals heterostructures by combinning 2D materials (graphene or TMDs) with others 2D materials or 0D materials (nanoparticles, colloids, molecules … ) to study electronic, optoelectronic and magnetic properties and functionalities.

Manouel Pichois,

Robin Pierron,
Doctorant (2018 cohort)

Research interests:
My research centers on understanding the excellent efficiency of the ultrafast photoisomerization of biomimetic molecules to engineer new molecular functions.

Sayali Shevate,
Doctorant (2018 cohort)

Research interests:
I work on the topic of quantum simulation of energy transport using Rydberg atoms. I aim to study how quantum effects influence the excitation transport, and find analogies with similar processes occurring in natural light harvesting molecules and synthetic optoelectronic materials.

David Wellnitz,
Doctorant (2018 cohort)

Research interests:
I am interested in understanding and describing quantum many body systems. In particular, I research the interaction of light and matter to answer fundamental questions with practical applications.

Tobias Wintermantel,
Doctorant (2018 cohort)

Research interests:
I am pursuing a joint PhD between the University of Strasbourg and the University of Heidelberg. My research includes laser cooling and high resolution imaging of ultracold potassium atoms and how long-range interactions mediated by Rydberg states give rise to new phases and dynamics of quantum gases.

Amir Khammari,
Doctorant (2018 cohort)

Research interests:
I’m using an ultrafast transmission electron microscope (UTEM) to study ultrafast transformations in nanomaterials (structural and chemical evolution of reversible and irreversible reactions). This microscope which has been developed at the IPCMS in Strasbourg (France), is able to obtain images, electron diffraction patterns, and electron energy-loss spectra (EELS) with nanometer and pico/nanosecond space–time resolution.
