Background and activities

Jabir Ali Ouassou is a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for Quantum Spintronics (NTNU). He has an MSc in applied physics and mathematics (NTNU, 2015) and a PhD in theoretical condensed matter physics (NTNU, 2019). He was awarded the Birkeland Prize 2020 for his PhD thesis “Manipulating superconductivity in magnetic nanostructures in and out of equilibrium”. During 2019-2021, he worked as a Research Scientist at SINTEF Energy Research, focusing on applied research on carbon capture, hydrogen production, and optimization models.
His main research interests are in superconductivity – specifically, how one can use e.g. magnetic elements or nonequilibrium potentials to control superconductivity in electronic devices. He is also interested in numerical physics, currently focused on linear-scaling algorithms for tight-binding systems.
