MCQST Colloquium | Andrei Bernevig (Princeton University)
Address / Location
MPI of Quantum Optics | Room B 0.32
The MCQST Colloquium Series features interdisciplinary talks given by visiting international speakers. The monthly colloquium covers topics spanning all MCQST research units and will be broadcast live via Zoom for audiences worldwide. The main goal of the series is to create the framework for idea exchange, to strengthen links with QST leading groups worldwide, as well as to act as an integral part of the local educational environment.
MCQST Colloquium: Andrei Bernevig

About the speaker
Bogdan Andrei Bernevig (born 1978 in Bucharest) is a Romanian Quantum Condensed Matter Professor of Physics at Princeton University and the recipient of the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship in 2017.
Andrei Bernevig took part in the Physics Olympiad in Bucharest from 1994 to 1997 as a teenager (and won international gold and silver medals). He graduated from Stanford University (bachelor's degree in physics and master's degree in mathematics in 2001) and received his PhD from Stanford University under Shoucheng Zhang. As a postdoctoral fellow he came to the Center for Theoretical Physics at Princeton University, where he was appointed Assistant Professor in 2009 and Associate Professor in 2014.
He deals with the application of topology in solid state physics, for example in the fractional quantum hall effect, and novel topological materials (topological insulators, topological superconductors) and spin transport or spintronics. He also deals with ferrous high-temperature superconductors and predicted s-wave pairing there.
