Professor, Applied Mathematics

Research interests: optical properties of carbon nano-structures


Professor Miskovic has published over 150 articles in physics journals, presented dozens of seminars and invited lectures at international meetings, and he acted as a referee for several journals and granting agencies. His research focuses on mathematical modeling and computer simulation of physical processes taking place when nanometer-sized structures interact with the surrounding media and with external probes. Currently, he explores how electron microscopy of graphene and other 2D materials can be used to reveal their properties for applications in nano-plasmonics and nano-photonics, as well as in biochemical sensing. Prof Miskovic’s collaborations include, besides his colleagues at the UW, several theoretical and experimental groups working on four continents.
