Andrea Damascelli


  • Fellow
  • Quantum Materials


Andrea Damascelli is a quantum physicist who uses spectroscopic techniques, including time-, spin- and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) and resonant elastic X-ray scattering (REXS) to study the low-energy electronic structure of quantum materials. He is director of the Quantum Matter Institute at UBC.
