Benjamin Huard graduated from the Ecole Normale Supérieure of Paris in 2003 and did his PhD studies in the Quantronics group at CEA Saclay (France) with Hugues Pothier. There, he performed experiments aiming at investigating the behavior of electrons in mesoscopic metallic and superconducting conductors. In 2006, he joined the Goldhaber-Gordon group at Stanford University (USA) as a post-doc fellow, and observed the Klein tunneling of electrons in graphene for the first time. In 2008, he started the activity of the Quantum Electronics group at Ecole Normale Supérieure (Paris, France) together with Michel Devoret. He received the Saint-Gobain award of the French Physics Society in 2006. He is a research scientist at CNRS and associate professor at Ecole Normale Supérieure.
