Dr. Ahmet Keles is a Post Doctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Physics & Astronomy. He received his Ph.D. in Physics at the University of Washington, Seattle. His main research is in condensed matter theory with a special interest in Atomic, Molecular, and Optical (AMO) physics as well as quantum materials. More specifically, he is trying to understand intriguing competing phases of strongly correlated quantum many-body systems, for example unconventional superconductivity and quantum magnetism, in the context of ultra-cold atomic gas experiments. Dr. Keles incorporates modern developments in quantum field theory and renormalization with the state-of-the-art computer technologies and the programming resources such as super-computing infrastructures and computing on graphical processing units (GPUs). Dr. Keles is also holding a vising scholar position in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Pittsburgh. His publications generally appear in the journals of American Physical Society such as Physical Review A, Physical Review B and Physical Review Letters.
