Philippe Jacquod obtained his B.S. and M.S. degrees in physics from the Swiss Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ), and his Ph.D. degree in natural sciences from the University of Neuchatel, Switzerland. He worked as a Postdoctoral Associate at the Applied Physics Department, Yale University, from 1997 to 2000, and at the Lorentz Institute for Theoretical Physics, Leiden University, the Netherlands, from 2000 to 2003. He was an Assistant Professor at the Department for Theoretical Physics at the University of Geneva, during 2003-2005. Since 2005, he has been an Associate Professor at the Physics Department, University of Arizona in Tucson, USA, where he also holds a joint appointment with the College of Optical Sciences. He has held visiting faculty positions at the University of Geneva, at the EPFL and at the Basel Center for Quantum Computing. His areas of academic interest include quantum chaos, the theory of decoherence, and the semiclassical theory of transport. His current works on meso- and nanosystems focus on linear and nonlinear spin, charge and thermoelectric transport in the quantum coherent regime and on spectroscopic properties of graphene over weakly-coupled substrates. He has recently started to work on complex multi-mode microlasers.
