Fabian Menges is a Post-Doctoral Researcher in the Materials Integration & Nanoscale Devices (MIND) group of the Science & Technology department at the IBM Research - Zurich laboratory. His research is focused on the experimental characterization of thermal energy transfer and conversion processes. He is engaged in the development of tools and techniques for nanoscale thermometry, the study of thermal transport down to the atomic scale, and the fabrication of nonlinear thermal devices.

Prior to joining IBM Research, Fabian studied Materials Science at RWTH Aachen (Germany) and the ETH Zurich (Switzerland), where he received his M.Sc. with distinction. In 2011 he was awarded the Best Interdisciplinary Master Thesis Award of the Micro and Nanoscience Platform at ETH Zurich. In December 2014, he defended his PhD thesis, reporting on the development of a pico-Watt per Kelvin thermal microscope for scanning probe thermometry. In 2016, Fabian received the Swiss Physical Society Award related to Metrology (SPS 2016 Prize) for his work on "Scanning Probe Thermometry of Nanosystems".
