Professor Jani Kotakoski
Univeristy of Vienna
Atomic-scale chemical and physical manipulation of materials in the electron microscope
Prof. Jani Kotakoski completed his PhD in Helsinki in 2007, worked as postdoc in Germany (2007-2009), in Finland (2009-2011) and Austria (2011-2015). Since 2015 he has been a professor at the University of Vienna (tenured as associate professor in 2017).
Jani is the head of the Physics of Nanostructured Materials research division at the Faculty of Physics in University of Vienna, and his research concentrates on the growth and manipulation of novel materials using a unique closed ultra high vacuum setup built around an aberration corrected transmission electron microscope.
