Ermin Malic, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden
Ermin Malic works in the field of many-particle physics in low-dimensional nanomaterials. He graduated in physics from Technische Universität Berlin, Germany, in 2005. While working on his PhD thesis, he was a visiting researcher at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, USA, and the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Italy. During his studies, he was a fellow of the German Academic Scholarship Foundation and the Friedrich-Ebert Foundation. He received the prestigious Walter-Schottky, Karl-Scheel, and Chorafas Awards for outstanding scientific research. After finishing his habilitation at the TU Berlin, including post-doctoral research stays in Barcelona and San Sebastian, he became Associate Professor at the Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden, in 2015. His group is now focusing on microscopic modelling of ultrafast phenomena and exciton physics in atomically thin 2D materials.
