Three Group Members Selected for Advanced School on Many-Body Physics

Dr. Jia Shi, Bushra Ashraf, and Syeda Faiza Rubab Sherazi were selected to attend the School on Electron-Phonon Physics, Many-Body Perturbation Theory, and Computational Workflows. The school will be held June 10-16, 2024 at The University of Texas at Austin.

The goal of this school is to introduce participants to first-principles calculations for electron-phonon physics and excited-state phenomena using the open-source electronic structure codes EPWQuantum ESPRESSOWannier90, and BerkeleyGW. The emphasis will be on advanced calculations of transport, optical, and superconducting properties of materials using density-functional perturbation theory, GW quasiparticle calculations of band structures, and calculations of optical properties using the Bethe-Salpeter equation (BSE). Materials of interest include, but are not limited to: semiconductors, two-dimensional materials, conventional superconductors, correlated electron systems, and topological quantum matter. More information about the school can be found here.

Congratulations Jia, Bushra, and Faiza!
