Prof. John Sader

Chief Investigator

Sader is an applied mathematician with extensive experience in modelling nanomechanics and energy flow in nanoscale systems. His expertise in analytical, numerical and computational solutions of the Boltzmann equation is utilised heavily, providing a foundation for mesoscopic electron and phonon transport.
