ביה"ס לפיזיקה ואסטרונומיה סגל אקדמי בכיר


Dr. Tobias Holder joined the condensed matter department in fall 2023. His primary research interests are the theoretical investigation of phenomena in quantum transport, as well as nonlocal and ballistic/hydrodynamic electron flow in high-mobility devices. These topics lie at the intersection of several timely research efforts in the condensed matter community which try to make sense of the wealth of information that is becoming available about complex and layered materials, heterostructures and van-der-Waals systems. The goal is to disassemble intricate questions into digestible pieces, in order to attain a genuine understanding of the underlying mechanisms.
