Ivan Deutsch (Rm. ) University of New MexicoVisiting Dec. 11th, 2023. Ivan will be visiting in order to give a quantum lunch.
Sami Mitra (Rm. ) Physical Review LettersVisiting Dec. 13th, 2023 to Dec. 15th, 2023. CNLS colloquium
Marivi Fernandez-Serra (Rm. ) Stony Brook UniversityVisiting Jan. 8th, 2024 to Jan. 12th, 2024. Purpose of visit: To give a research talk focused on the application of (time-dependent) density functional theory and machine learning methods as applied to diverse nonequilibrium physical phenomena, and form future collaborations with LANL staff. About the visitor: Marivi Fernández-Serra is a professor of Physics & Astronomy at Stony Brook University. She is also on the panel of faculty at Institute for Advanced Computational Science at Stony Brook. She completed her Ph.D. in 2004 at the University of Cambridge followed by a postdoctoral appointment at Claude Bernard University Lyon 1, France. She was a winner of the Early Career Award of the United States Department of Energy, in 2010. In 2020, Prof. Fernández-Serra was named a Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS), after a nomination from the APS Division of Computational Physics, "for extending density functional theory in groundbreaking work on the structure and dynamics of complex materials, and especially for improving understanding of the electronic structure of water, including ice and interfaces".
Benjamin Cohen-Stead (Rm. ) U. Tennessee, KnoxvilleVisiting Jan. 22nd, 2024 to Jan. 27th, 2024. Discuss our collaborative BES data science project, including applications of machine learning to quantum Monte Carlo algorithms
Hung Tan (Rm. ) Syracuse UniversityVisiting Feb. 26th, 2024 to Mar. 1st, 2024. NP3M exchange, seminar
Bhimsen Shivamoggi (Rm. ) University of Central FloridaVisiting Mar. 1st, 2024 to May. 31st, 2024. Bhimsen Shivamoggi is a professor of mathematics at UCF who has made fundamental contributions in theoretical fluid dynamics, turbulence, condensed matter physics, and plasma physics. He will spend part of his sabbatical at CNLS. During that time, he will deliver CNLS seminars and collaborate with a numerous researchers at the lab including his host for the visit Nadiga. I'm requesting that Bhimsen be paid just the per-diem for this visit (67% CNLS and 33% Nadiga)
