Mr Jesse Vaitkus

Research Fellow

Jesse's research has focused on modelling quantum transport at the meso- and nano- scales. During his PhD candidature at RMIT University, he studied electron transport in nanodevices using the non-equilibrium Greens function (NEGF) formalism with Prof. Jared Cole and won the Ian Snook best physics PhD award. Jesse completed his double BSc. of Nanotechnology and Applied Sciences in 2013 with Distinction, and published his first paper the same year. Jesse completed his Honours degree in 2014, winning the Marc Reitman best theory student award. In addition to his scientific research interests, he is keenly interested in data presentation and how to most effectively communicate ideas.
