Philippe Schwaller

Research Staff Member
IBM Research


I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from EPFL (École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland) and I spent the last year of my Bachelor’s studies as an ERASMUS student at the University of Manchester. During my Master’s research, I had the opportunity to be a member of Prof. Nicola Marzari’s laboratory. There, I started the extraction of layered materials from inorganic crystalline compounds databases and calculated the binding energy of the layers, as well as the elastic constants of the parent crystals, with density functional theory. I was awarded the “Best Academic Master Thesis 2016” prize in Materials Science & Engineering at EPFL. After graduating in October 2016, I completed the last months of my civil service in the Functional Polymers laboratory at EMPA.
