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: we develop novel mathematical and computational techniques to do our work. We also collaborate with several excellent experimental groups.

Our work has been supported by the DOE, NSF, and AFOSR. 

A note for prospective students: The work in this group is exclusively theoretical and computational in nature. It requires both a strong backgroud and a passion for math, theoretical physics, and programming. If you think you might be a good fit for the group, email Prof. Knezevic. Include a brief CV, along with (unofficial) test scores and transcript. The group has students pursuing PhD in ECE, Physics, and Materials Science & Engineering. In general, you will have to enroll in one of these graduate programs in order to be able to join the group.
