Dr. Titus Sandu is a full-time Senior Researcher I at National Institute for Research and Development in Microtechnologies-IMT Bucharest, Laboratory of Molecular Nanotechnology. He is in charge of Laboratory for High Performance Computing within the Research Centre for Integrated Systems, Nanotechnologies, and Carbon Based Nanomaterials-CENASIC.
Dr. Sandu holds a BS in Physics and Mathematics from Bucharest University (1989 and 1997, respectively), an MS in Nuclear Physics (1999) and a PhD in Condensed Matter Physics (2002) from Texas A&M University, USA.
He has an experience over 20 years in the theory and modeling of : (a) Electronic structure and optical properties of materials with ab-initio and empirical methods; (b) Quantum transport in nanostructures; (c) Molecular dynamics (including Car-Parrinello); (d) Dielectric response of living cells; (e) Plasmonics ; (f) Dynamical systems.
Currently, one of the topics of interest is applying solvable models of Mathematical Physics in Nanophysics and Nanotechnology.
Previously he held postdoctoral positions at the University of Texas at Arlington, USA, in Electrical Engineering Department, Arizona State University, USA, in Chemical and Materials Engineering Department, and the University of Montreal, Canada, in Chemistry Department.
