Yann Chalopin was a postdoctoral associate from 2009 to 2010 at M.I.T with  prof. Gang Chen. He received his M.S. (2006) in solid state physics and Ph.D. (2009) from Ecole Centrale Paris, under the supervision of prof. J.J. Greffet.

Yann is currently a CNRS research scientist at Ecole CentraleSupelec. His research interests include the theoretical aspects of nanoscale energy transport and conversion (nano-optics, nanoscale heat transport) and the development of computational methods to study physical properties of low-dimensional systems.
