incent Meunier is a R&D staff member at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) with the Computational Chemical Sciences Group in the Computer Science and Mathematics Division. He has over 45 publications in peer-reviewed journals in the areas of electronic quantum transport, electronic structure, field emission and scanning probe microscopy. His undergraduate (1992-1996) and post-graduate (1996-1999) degrees were obtained at the Facultés Universitaires Notre-Dame de la Paix, Namur, Belgium. Subsequently, he worked as a postdoctoral research associate at the Solid State Theory Group, North Carolina State University, North Carolina (2000-2002), before joining the Computational Materials Science Group at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in 2002. In 2004, he became R&D staff member at the Computational Chemical Sciences Group, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, where he conducts research in theoretical physics, with special emphasis into electronic quantum transport and novel scanning probe microscopy techniques. He has been an honorary research fellow of the Belgian national fund for scientific research (FNRS) from 2001 to 2004. In 2004, he received the “Courtoy Award” for “Best thesis of the Physics department of Namur University for period extending from 1999 to 2002”. In addition to his research into efficient and robust calculations on open systems suitable for transport modeling, he has been pursuing tight collaborations with experimental groups within and outside ORNL.
