Dr. rer. nat. Rafael Gutierrez


Research interests

PD Dr. Rafael Gutierrez studied Physics at the Dresden University of Technology from 1986-1990 and finished his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics in 1995 on the topic of Anharmonic Effects in Fullerenes and Superconductors under the supervision of Prof. Jü:rgen Schreiber and Prof. Klaus Becker. He had his first Post-Doctoral stay at the Technical University of Chemnitz with Prof. Thomas Frauenheim until 1999, working on the electronic and structural properties of semiconducting systems. In 1999 he returned to TU Dresden and worked as a Research Associate at the Institute of Theoretical Physics with Prof. Rüdiger Schmidt and PD Dr. Frank Grossmann on the first-principle treatment of electron transport at the molecular scale. From 2003-2007 he worked on quantum transport in DNA and other low-dimensional system with Dr. Gianaurelio Cuniberti and Prof. Klaus Richter at the Institute of Theoretical Physics at the University of Regensburg. Since 2007 he is Senior Scientist and Lecturer at the Chair Materials Science and Nanotechnology by Prof. Gianaurelio Cuniberti. Dr. Gutierrez obtained 2016 his Habilitation on Computational Modelling of Nanomaterials and is since March 2016 Privatdozent. His research activities include the modelling of electron, phonon and spin transport at the nanoscale using first-principle and model-based approaches.
