Background and activities
Arne Brataas received his Ph.D. in physics from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in 1998. He has been a postdoctoral fellow at TU Delft and Harvard University and, since 2002, professor at his alma mater. He is chairman of the Kavli Prize committee in Nanoscience and a recipient of the 2015 ERC Advanced Grant. His main interest are the theory of spin transport and dynamics in insulating and conducting nanostructured materials.
