Niv Levy

Niv Levy is a NRC Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Electron Physics Group. He received B.A. and M.Sc. degrees in Physics from the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology. and a Ph.D. in Physics from the University of California at Berkeley. At the CNST, Niv is working with Joseph Stroscio on scanning probe-based measurements of topological insulators at ultra-low temperatures and in high magnetic fields.
