Prof Artem Mishchenko

Artem Mishchenko is a professor of condensed matter physics, Faculty of Science and Engineering, University of Manchester. He got PhD in Molecular Electronics in 2010 at the Faculty of Science, Bern University, Switzerland. He is a leading expert in the physics of van der Waals materials. His research is centred on quantum phenomena in a large variety of systems: from single molecules and proton transport to the structure of water in confined geometries and quantum transport in van der Waals materials.

He has published over 100 papers, nearly half in high-profile journals such as Science, Nature and Nature group, PNAS, Nano Letters, and PRL. His h-index is 48, with >26000 citations. Google scholar

He has been selected Highly Cited Researcher by Clarivate Analytics for the past five years - from 2018 to 2022. He has been recognised internationally – he received the prestigious EMFL Prize in 2018 and the Blavatnik Award for Young Scientists in 2021, for “Revealing unusual quantum phenomena in vertical, multilayer stacks of two-dimensional materials, in particular those that hold great potential in the development of novel electronic transistors for light-emitting diodes (LEDs), high-speed electronics, and information storage.” He has secured major external funding, including the highly prestigious ERC Consolidator Grant (2020-2025), and EPSRC Early Career Fellowship (2016-2021).
