The group of Prof. Irena Knezevic in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison explores the interaction of charge carriers, lattice vibrations, and electromagnetic waves in nanoscale systems. Our research is theoretical in nature, employing a variety of analytical and computational techniques. Active collaborations with several excellent experimental groups inform our theoretical work.
