Group Leader

Prof. Stephan Roche is a theoretician with more than 20 years' experience in the study of transport theory in low-dimensional systems, including graphene, carbon nanotubes, semiconducting nanowires, organic materials and topological insulators.

He has published more than 150 papers in journals such as Review of Modern Physics, Nature Physics, Nano Letters and Physical Review Letters (40 papers) and is the co-author of the recently-published Introduction to Graphene-Based Nanomaterials: From Electronic Structure to Quantum Transport (Cambridge University Press, 2014). He received authorisation to supervise PhD students from the Université Joseph-Fourier (Grenoble, France) in 2004, since which time he has supervised seven PhD students and some 20  postdoctoral researchers in France, Germany and Spain. In 2009 Prof. Roche was awarded the prestigious Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award by the Alexander Von-Humboldt Foundation (Germany) and, last but not least, since 2011 he has been actively involved in the European Graphene Flagship project, as part of which he currently co-leads the work package on spintronics.
