Professor Devereaux develops numerical methods and theories of photon-based spectroscopies of strongly correlated materials. The goal of his research is to understand electron dynamics via a combination of analytical theory and numerical simulations to provide insight into new quantum materials and how to better use them in applications that impact energy technologies. His group uses large-scale numerical simulations at local and Tier I computing facilities.

Brian is a Staff Scientist at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in the Stanford Institute for Materials and Energy Sciences (SIMES). Brian has used a variety of numerical techniques, including quantum Monte Carlo and exact diagonalization, to study model Hamiltonians of strongly correlated materials. Using efficient, parallel algorithms to perform numerical simulations, he is then able to compare his results to data from angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) and resonant X-ray scattering. Recently, Brian has used a nonequilibrium formulation of dynamical mean-field theory (DMFT) to understand the behavior of correlated electron systems driven out of equilibrium by strong fields. He now focuses on understanding the nonequilibrium physics revealed by various types of pump-probe experiments including those performed using the soft x-ray (SXR) end-station at the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS).

I joined Tom Devereaux’s group as a postdoc in July 2014 after my first postdoc in Jan Zaanen’s group in Leiden University (Netherlands). I received my PhD in 2011 from Tsinghua University (Beijing, China) in Zhengyu Weng’s group. My research interests involves strongly correlated materials and quantum matter. In particular, I’m interested in the Fermion sign structure in the Hubbard model and t-J model, quantum liquid crystals and other exotic quantum phases. Recently I’m also working on new mechanisms for enhancement of the thermoelectric performance, by applying new novel materials, especially non-Fermi liquid systems.

I graduated from USTC and got my Bachlor's degree in 2008 and recieved my Ph.D. in Applied Physics at Stanford University in 2014. I am currently a research associate in the group of Prof. Tom Devereaux in SIMES. I first joined the Devereaux group as graduate student in the Fall quarter of 2008. My research interests mainly lie in the computational study of high temperature superconductors, exact diagonalization, and inelastic light scattering spectroscopy.

Christian joined Tom Devereaux’s group in April 2015 as postdoc to work on numerical methods for studying model Hamiltonians for strongly correlated systems. Before moving to Stanford, Christian was a postdoc at the Technische Universität München, Germany, collaborating with Herbert Spohn on nonequilibrium statistical mechanics and kinetic equations. Besides that, another research direction is density functional theory in the strong interaction limit.

Graduate Student
  

Yvonne is a graduate student in physics at Stanford. She received an undergraduate degree in physics and a minor in biology from Stanford in 2009. Her interests lie in elucidating the behavior of strongly correlated systems using analytical and numerical techniques, such as determinant quantum Monte Carlo. These results can be compared to pump-probe experiments conducted at LCLS, as well as angle-resolved photoemission studies and x-ray absorption data. In the summer of 2012, she participated in the National Science Foundation’s East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes program to study model Hamiltonians of strongly correlated materials using the tensor product state technique.

Graduate Student
  

Nachum has been a PhD student at Stanford since 2009. He has been conducting theoretical research in high temperature superconductors, focusing on interesting non-superconducting phases that may shed light on superconductivity. Using mean field theory, T matrix theory, and exact diagonalization, he studies proposed phases for the cuprates' pseudogap in both extended and 3-band Hubbard models, as well as the magnetic and orbital phases of iron-based superconductors and their impurity effects.
