Dr. Brian Moritz

Welcome to the homepage of Dr. Brian Moritz. Brian is a Staff Scientist in the Stanford Institute for Materials and Energy Sciences (SIMES) at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University as well as an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Physics and Astrophysics at the University of North Dakota. Brian uses a number of numerical techniques, including exact diagonalization, quantum Monte Carlo, and dynamical mean-field theory, to study the behavior of various models for strongly correlated materials and simulate different spectroscopies, including photoemission, Raman spectroscopy, and resonant x-ray scattering. He currently focuses on understanding the physics revealed by time-resolved, pump-probe experiments, including those performed using the soft x-ray (SXR) end-station at the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS). Brian is a member of the Time-Resolved Spectroscopies research team of the Computational Materials and Chemical Sciences Network (CMCSN) and recently served as a Basic Energy Sciences representative on the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) Users' Group Executive Committee (NUGEX).
