Dr. Clemens Winkelmann has been Associate Professor at Grenoble Institute of engineering since 2008, and also assumes the role of educational manager for the Nanoscience summerschool since its beginning.
He received his PhD in 2004 from Grenoble University, working on the properties of superfluid helium. In 2005 he was awarded a JSPS post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Tokyo, where he studied superconducting materials by scanning tunneling microscopy. His present research activity at Institut Néel focuses on quantum nanoelectronics.
His principal topics of research are about mesoscopic superconducting devices, graphene and thermal effects at the nanoscale.
