Dr. Kurt Stokbro: Kurt Stokbro born in 1965, is an internationally recognized researcher and serial entrepreneur. He is a cofounder and CEO of QuantumWise A/S, and has previously held a professorship at Copenhagen University and positions at Technical University of Denmark. Dr. Stokbro has published more than 70 papers and review articles in international journals, held a large number of lectures as invited speaker and has organized 3 international conferences in nanoscience. He has more than 5500 citations and a H-index of 29. The scheme for ab initio calculations of quantum transport, developed by Dr. Stokbro and co-workers, has become the de facto standard for electron transport calculations and has laid the foundation for QuantumWise A/S and Atomistix A/S.
Troels Markussen: Troels Markussen is a scientific specialist at QuantumWise A/S since 2013. He received his Ph.D. in 2009 from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Dept. of Micro and Nanotechnology. After that he was employed as a postdoc at the Dept. of Physics, also at DTU. In 2011 he received an individual postdoc scholarship Founded by the Danish Council for Independent Research, FTP, through the Sapere-Aude Young Elite Researchers program. His research interests concern atomic-scale simulations of electron- and phonon transport, electron-phonon interactions and spin-transport in nanoscale systems with particular focus on nanowires and molecular junctions. He has more than 30 peer-reviewed publications and has an H-index of 21.
